Son: 'BofA's Breaking Law By Giving My Elderly Mom The Boot From F'closed Home!' Bankster Accused Of Ceasing Rent Collection, Sending Eviction Notice

In Porterville, California KSEE-TV Channel 24 reports:

  • On a typical morning, you can find Eve Ball outside her Porterville home, sitting on the porch, sipping coffee, listening to wind chimes. Eve Ball said, "It's been my home ever since my husband past away."

  • That was 11 years ago. Her son Barry bought the home for her. Three years later he sold it and negotiated a 10 year lease for his mom with the new owner.

  • In October, the owner foreclosed. Bank of America took over, stopped accepting rent and sent Eve an eviction notice. Barry Ball said, "It's somewhat ironic that we as taxpayers bailed Bank of America out in the first place and now they're not keeping up to their end of the bargain as promised."

  • Eve took the fight. Her attorney, Alex Reed-Krase claims the bank is breaking federal law. The Protecting Tenants at Foreclosure Act of 2009 to be exact. "Tenants have a senior interest and banks can't just kick them out...they have to live out their lease," he said.

  • In court, bank attorneys said the law shouldn't apply in this case. The judge heard both sides and said he'll make a decision soon. Until that happens, Eve says she's not going anywhere, "I think this may help someone else going through this I hope."
