When Akari residents were asked to sign a form stating their intentions to sell their apartment, it contained no specific instructions about the buyer.
They could not even specify the amount they would pay.
In fact, they were given no options.
The residents who signed said they were willing to pay $1,000 for their apartment — but only if they could move into the apartment, which would be their new home.
When they showed up for the signing, they found that their apartment was already sold.
The apartments in the two homes are two different things, says Akari resident Chico, whose apartment was sold at the beginning of August.
The $1 million price tag on her home is actually the sum of the selling price, plus an additional $500,000.
She was offered the apartments by her sister-in-law, and they both agreed to the deal.
But she says she was told that she would have to move in with her sister, and the house would not be her new home, which she did not realize until she showed up to the apartment in October.
A couple of weeks after her apartment was purchased, Akari’s landlord, Lyle Baca, began evicting the residents.
After being told that the homes had already been sold, he threatened to send police to the property.
He also told the residents that he would not renew the leases on the two apartments.
He was never contacted for comment.
The residents, however, have since obtained a court order, which states that Baca is in violation of a court ruling that says he cannot evict them without first getting a court approval.
The order also states that they will have to pay the $1.5 million price, but it will not be disclosed until after they have moved out.
The residents’ attorney, Jason Cagle, told HuffPost that the residents were “lucky” to have an attorney who was willing to take their case.
He says he is concerned that Bacas lawyers are being able to use a “loophole” to push through a sale without proper approval from the court.
“We are asking that the court make sure that they get approval from a judge so that they can make the purchase,” Cagle said.
