No eviction today

Elvinia Lee heard a knock on her door yesterday, just a few weeks shy of her 104th birthday. It was the Sheriff’s department and moving company with a crew prepared to clear out her house, with an order from Deutsche Bank through loan servicer Chase Bank ordering the eviction of the Atlanta native and her 83 year old daughter who had lived in the home together for 53 years.

The movers and Sheriffs “took one look at” Lee and left, opting not to go through with the eviction and as seen in the video above, Lee was confident she would not be removed.

According to WSB TV, at some point in years past, a family member who was not living in the home took out a second mortgage and then never paid for it, making the home subject to eviction. The issue has been in and out of court over the years with a judge recently ordering the eviction which Chase Bank says is now off the table, telling the press they are working on keeping the women in their home.

The stress of the possible eviction made Lee’s daughter ill; she was rushed to the hospital the same day. Lee told the reporter that her message for the bank is simply “Please don’t come in and disturb me no more. When I’m gone you all can come back and do whatever they want to.”
