I’m not quite sure how effective this particular approach is but one foreclosure specialist, facing financial problems of her own, has chained herself to the front porch while awaiting eviction.
The woman chained to the porch is June Reyno. June Reyno, her husband and their five dogs have lived in their Mira Mesa home for nearly 20 years. Now, they are being evicted, but June Reyno is not having it.
The San Diego Sheriff’s Department is expected to come out to the Reyno’s home sometime Monday or Tuesday. Reyno said she will remain chained to her home until “the California State Legislature elected officials respond to these massive evictions and foreclosures that are going on in our county.”
Reyno says it all started when she lost her job. The couple refinanced, but after two years the rate adjusted. June Reyno says their payments went from $3,999 per month to $5,800.
“We were only able to make our payments for so long and we had to go for bankruptcy,” she explains.
She says she’s exhausted and mad.
“Now we’re squatters of our own home,” Reyno says. “That hurts a lot.”
Reyno is upset at a system she says took advantage of her.
Reyno said they were approved for a loan to buy back the property, but she claimed property manager Jeff Wagner apparently won’t agree to these terms.
