2 Families Stake Legal Claim To Same Palmdale House
Two families stake a legal claim to the same house in Palmdale. Both say they are entitled to live at this house on Victoria Street.
The situation has gotten so tense, sheriff’s deputies showed up at the house this evening to try to sort out the mess.
Who gets to move in? And who gets told to hit the road?
CBS2’s Juan Fernandez was there.
Fernandez spoke to Charles Nelson. He moved into the house 10 days ago, to rent, after answering an ad in the Penny Saver.
“I’m in the middle of it. They got my money and I’m just finding out about all this,” Nelson said.
But one problem. Lieurance Daniel and his wife Krystel are in escrow… they bought the home from the current owner.
They drove by last week and couldn’t believe what they saw — Nelson moving in… into their home!
“We thought they’re painters or a moving crew or something getting ready for us because we’re expecting to close in two or three weeks,” Daniel said.
KNX 1070’s Ed Mertz reports that the dispute over the home became so heated sheriff’s deputies were called. Nelson showed deputies a rental agreement and deed to the home.
Realtors told Fernandez the deed is a fake. Nelson, for his part, says he’s done nothing wrong. Other than to perhaps trust people he shouldn’t have.
