BRIEF: Houston couple gets money back from botched foreclosure
Jun 21, 2012 (The Macon Telegraph - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) --
WARNER ROBINS -- A couple who battled with the U.S. Department of Agriculture for four months over a botched foreclosure sale has gotten their money back.
In an e-mail Thursday, Bonnie Walker said she had received the check from USDA's Farm Service Agency that returned the $37,500 she and her husband Charles paid for the home at a foreclosure auction.
After they paid for the house, the couple learned the foreclosure was illegal because USDA hadn't given proper notice, so they couldn't evict the residents and they couldn't get their money back. After filing a complaint against USDA in Houston County Superior Court, USDA agreed to a consent order to vacate the foreclosure and return the money.
