Man! It’s like the banks just can’t wait, or they’re doing it from force of habit or…what?:
The eviction came after Ramirez’s home was mistakenly auctioned off to the highest bidder by her bank, Washington Mutual. Usually, you get a warning before you get the boot. A foreclosure letter. Maybe a sign saying your house is up for sale. Not Ramirez, who found her belongings bashed and battered in the street.
“This came out of nowhere,” Ramirez said. “The bank took the house from right under my feet….”
…The sale was eventually reversed by a Miami-Dade judge, allowing Ramirez to return to her old digs. Ramirez said she wants to sue for the damage to her furniture.
Ramirez has lived in the house for three years and recently refinanced the home with the bank.
“This shouldn’t be happening, you know, because we did the right thing,” she said. “We went step by step.”
