TSA agent hammers Trump for forcing her to work for free after she receives eviction notice

Appearing on CNN on Thursday afternoon, a TSA agent who works out of Chicago’s O’Hare airport said she may be homeless soon after receiving an eviction notice because she is working without pay and can’t pay her rent.

Speaking with host Brianna Keilar, agent Christine Vitel said that she received an eviction notice on property she owns despite explaining her situation and providing documentation from the government about her working but unpaid status.

. . .

“We just, of course, found out a couple days ago we are not getting our paycheck, and yesterday when I was at work, my son texted me a picture,” Vitel recalled. “I got a five-day notice from — I have a house, I bought a house, but I rent the land. My community sent me a five-day notice to pay on my lot rent.”

“They are aware of the permanent home security letter I received, and they said they would work with me,” she continued. “However, when I spoke to them yesterday, the receptionist Melissa stated that I needed to pay my rent, and if I don’t pay my rent within five days she’ll have to see what the manager wants to do and that could be court procedures”

the problem is that there are hundreds of thousands like her. I hope her situation is rectified, at least, but it's a sad story that will be repeated endlessly around the country.

8. Sounds a little fishy to me....

I am a landlord and there are strict laws about eviction. In my state you have to give a 10 day written notice to the tenant demanding the past due rent, then at the end of the notice period you have to file eviction paperwork and pay a fee to the county and a court date is set (never got a court date set under 2 weeks away).

At the court proceedings the tenant can pay their back rent and the landlord can decide if they can stay. Then there is an appeal process and they have 10 working days to appeal. Then, if they don't appeal, the landlord must then pay a fee for the sheriff to physically evict them. If they are staying in your house they have to leave that day. If their trailer or modular home is on your land they have 10 more working days to vacate. The whole process takes lots of time and the tenant has rights.

If she is getting evicted then she is probably already behind in her rent and probably already had lots of chances.

Landlords do not want to go through the eviction process...it costs a lot of money, plus you always worry about what a disgruntled tenant will do to your property. I always try to work with folks...right now I have a guy who is one month behind on his rent and the second month is coming up in a few days...but he just got a job and has been communicating with me. Now I will have to give him several months to catch up since he still needs to eat and put gas in his car. Hopefully he won't do the "midnight move!"

10. I likewise think there's something a bit off in that story.

She has only forgone one pay check so far and she's being evicted this quickly? Really?

11. sounds like this might be a trailer or manufactured housing

She says she owns her home but rents the land.
I have no idea if this makes a difference or not, but I certainly wouldn't assume the laws are the same.

14. Same laws here in NC--I have both types of property--

I rent houses and land for trailers or mobile homes and people with their own mobile home get extra time to get it moved.

9. They don't care. Do U? Mnuchin is the King of Foreclosures

[link:https://money.cnn.com/2017/05/16/news/mnuchin-financial-freedom-settlement/index.html|
|
During Mnuchin's tenure, Financial Freedom foreclosed on more than 16,000 reverse mortgages, according to records obtained under the Freedom of Information Act by the public interest group California Reinvestment Coalition.
Related: Steven Mnuchin's 'widow foreclosure' problem
That made up almost 40% of all government-guaranteed reverse mortgage foreclosures. It was more than twice what a lender of Financial Freedom's size should have produced, according to the interest group.
The investigation settled with Tuesday's announcement stemmed from broad concerns flagged by Sandra Jolley, who runs a reverse mortgage consulting firm based in California.
Jolley stands to receive $1.6 million of the settlement through federal whistleblower laws.

13. Sounds like a real estate buying opportunity!

Every situation creates opportunity for someone. See how the Republican economy works? Maybe someone will buy this house on the cheap and flip it.

Just because a hard working federal employee may be having some misfortune because they trusted the wrong government, it doesn't mean EVERYBODY loses! Some nice property speculator may be able to buy their kid another year in a prep school with the profits from this distressed sale.

AIN'T AMURIKA GREAT!
