Our Soldiers Losing Their Homes

Whilst Sgt. James B. Hurley was off to war, he lost a heartbreaking battle back at home.

In violation of  legislation to protect military personnel active against creditors, officials at Deutsche Bank seized on his small house in Michigan, forcing the his wife, Brandie, and his two young children go out and find shelter elsewhere.

When the sergeant returned in December 2005, he passed the densely wooded waterfront property outside of Hartford, Mich. The peaceful little house was still there - birds d  winter even more s  sprang the gazebo, it was built on the edge of  water - but it would almost certainly never be his again. Less than two months before his return from the war, the officers of the bank sold the property to a buyer in Chicago for $ 76 000.

Since then, Sergeant Hurley has been on an odyssey through the judicial system, with little  hope for  a happy ending - in fact, the foreclosure that cost him his house is also cost him his marriage.  Brandie took this very badly , said Sgt Hurley, 45, a plainspoken man who was disabled in Iraq and is now unemployed. \We try to reconstruct it.

In March 2009, a federal judge ruled that the foreclosure of the bank in 2004 violated federal law, but the battle s  not stop there for Sergeant Hurley.

Generally, banks respond quickly to reports of public  errors in military families. Government should work on a good plan to provide instant support that will guarantee help foreclosure victims. These sort of foreclosures should not happen and to stop foreclosure of such types we must all unite and fight back. Least a better solution should be provided to the house owners fighting away from their homes that can work when it comes to foreclosure freeze. Also reports and surveys proved the increasing ratio of wrongful foreclosure and foreclosure fraud. Now is the time we must consider and make this our priority to assist people, that are about to lose their homes.

Journalists confiscate to the walled structure of one-story buildings saw weighty fae impairment. The wind had torn feather the control of one antiquity.
