i covered up my address and anything that would remotely let ya’ll know my personal shit, but this was the first page of five of the letter that came by certified mail today. the rest of the letter pretty much told me how much is owed to the lender and that i have 33 days til foreclosure.
the fun part of this situation is that the house i lived in is owned by a relative who lives elsewhere and i usually pay the bills and for upkeep of the property. so we have a verbal agreement. the shittier part is that my roommate has an actual lease from this relative. which means they’ve been paying rent (low rent, since they’re a student) to this relative.
i’m really fuckin pissed because the notice said they haven’t paid mortgage since october, but my roommate’s been paying their portion of the rent on time for the past 6 months. my roomie and i both use housing stipends from our school in order to pay living expenses, so this comes at a really bad time because we’re between semesters and living on a shoestring budget. we don’t have the money to move right now or to afford a new place, but we’ve both decided that is our plan.
i know my relative probably won’t have what they owe the bank and i can’t help them. my money has kept the lights, heat, and water on for the past 6 months and i’m close to nothing till my next housing stipend is dispersed. the semester starts in a couple weeks and we don’t get our stipends until about 3 weeks in, which would be around the time the house goes into foreclosure.
i’ll be setting up a store thinger, if ya’ll want to buy trinkets and shit from me. i also have a donate link thing on my blog under “support.” i’m not a fan of asking for help, but i really don’t want my roommate to have to go through this. i’ve seen the sheriff kick people out in my neighborhood before and it’s never pretty.
thanking ya’ll in advance and stuff. *hugs*
