Rally Against Eviction at Wells Fargo

Posted by on Fri, Jan 25, 2013 at 1:12 PM

At 3:30 p.m. today, a small crowd of people will be rallying outside of the downtown Wells Fargo building on Third Ave to demand that the bank process one man's rent check and—more importantly—allow him to buy his foreclosed house back.

The nonprofit SAFE (Standing Against Foreclosure and Eviction in Washington) is organizing the rally on behalf of foreclosed homeowner Jeremy Griffin. Griffin, who lost his job during the economic meltdown caused by banks like Wells Fargo, was foreclosed on in November but is still living in the house pending eviction.

Wells Fargo was unable to auction the house at market value recently and is holding on to the property. Now Griffin has a good job again and wants to make rent payments to the bank. He's even ready to buy back the house at market value. But the same bank that foreclosed on him for not paying his mortgage is now unwilling to accept his money.

If you're free this afternoon, stand with Griffin, SAFE, and the rest of the homeowners who've been shit on by the big banks at 999 Third Ave, at 3:30 p.m.

No one lives in homes.

They all live in apodments.

Take the money and live in an apodment.

This is the only way.

It's wasn't his home, it was his ex-partner's home.

And I don't see Jeremy as having spare savings around to "buy back the house at market value", so he'll need to find a lender to offer him a mortgage. Is the real problem that nobody will lend to him?

It would be surprising if he was presenting a check to Wells Fargo for the $160k value of the property and they were refusing.

BTW, you are rather transparent as well. Have you seen the mortgage papers? I know who has their name on them. I know who made the last payments
I know who has family and friends who just might indeed up the dollars needed. That is from love and respect, something that you do not know of in your life. Poor sad loser. Get a real life, preferably in Utah

"the primary mortgage was in my partner's name"

How is Jeremy's credit?
