Larkin Hoffman Represents Lender in Eviction Dispute After Foreclosure

08/21/2012

Representing a lender after foreclosure of its mortgage against a multi-unit building, Julie Nagorski recently obtained favorable decisions allowing the two remaining occupants to be evicted. The former owner had rented a portion of the commercial space to an operator of a grocery store, who argued to the court that he had not been provided with notice of the lender’s interest or that his lease was terminated. Ms. Nagorski argued that the tenant’s position was not supported by law and the court agreed, issuing an order for eviction. Meanwhile, the former owner claimed he had entered and performed a cash for keys agreement with the lender and that the lender refused to pay him pursuant to that agreement. Following a trial, the court rejected that defense, issuing an order allowing for the former owner to be evicted.
