The Resolution Law Group: First National Bank of Wellston (Ohio) repossessed the wrong house, removed and discarded all of the contents, and isn’t stepping up to correct the error.

First National Bank of Wellston (Ohio) repossessed the wrong house, removed and discarded all of the contents, and isn’t stepping up to correct the error.

The facts are undisputed. The bank foreclosed on a home…not Katie Blanchard’s home. The foreclosure was supposed to have involved a house across the street from her.

Ms. Blanchard returned home with her children after a weekend trip and found (to her surprise) that the locks to her home had been changed. She “broke in” through a window and discovered that all of her belongings were gone! She has asked for $18,000 to try to rebuild her life. The bank wants receipts of everything she claims is missing. However, any receipts of course, would have been removed by the bank (with all her other personal property) when they entered her home by mistake.

Geoffrey Broderick, the senior partner of the Resolution Law Group says, “We hear these types of stories every day. How could a local neighborhood bank be so careless and then so callous as well? There is no defense. The bank entered the wrong house and removed all of a family’s possessions.” Broderick added, “Ms. Blanchard‘s request of $18,000 to replace everything she owned seems eminently reasonable. She didn’t ask for millions of dollars. It is inconceivable that the bank has refused to step up and fix the problem it caused.”

Mr. Broderick adds that “The housing market will continue to suffer until it is fixed by the Courts or the Legislature. Somebody has to fix the problem. That is why The Resolution Law Group continues its fight for homeowners. Homeowners cannot expect the problem to fix itself.”

The Resolution Law Group continues to prosecute ground breaking litigation in Federal Court on behalf of homeowners suing lenders and servicers for, among other things, the illegal use of MERS, robo-signing, and intentionally ignoring underwriting standards and encouraging inflated appraisals.

The Resolution Law Group is currently enrolling clients into the pending lawsuit. For further information, visit its website at www.TheResolutionLawGroup.com
