Outrageous Soldier Who 'Overstayed His Welcome' and Wife Speak Out About Scrooge Landlord
A soldier returning home to South Carolina for the holidays to see his wife and newborn daughter has been told by his wife's landlord that he has "overstayed his welcome" and must move out.
The landlord says Sgt. William Bolt's name isn't on the lease and "visitors" can only stay for seven days.
Bolt's wife, Lily, explained on "Fox and Friends Weekend" this morning that the landlord called her last week while she was studying for exams. He asked if her husband was still staying with her in the apartment. When she answered yes, she was informed that her husband had "overstayed his welcome" and needed to leave.
Lily said she tried to explain that they only needed to stay for a few more days before leaving to spend the holidays with her family in Virginia, but the landlord said he didn't care about their circumstances or the fact that they are a military family.
"I left it at that and went and talked to William. Then, William tried to call him and get a better understanding of what was going on," she said.
Sgt. Bolt explained that when the lease was originally signed, he and his wife informed the landlord that, as a military man, he might be returning for up to two weeks at a time when on leave. Bolt said the landlord agreed that would be fine, as long as they filled out the guest form.
"We submitted it and he approved it and didn't have any issue with it. So, we thought we were fine. About eight or nine days in, he calls my wife and says it's time to go and I gotta go," Bolt said.
Lily revealed that they have not decided if she will move out of the apartment at The Groves complex in the South Carolina town of Central. She said the landlord has threatened her with double the rent if she and her husband remain.
In the meantime, they are staying with friends for a few days and have lawyers looking into the situation.
