Outrageous 97-Year-Old Woman with Cancer Says Landlord Trying to Evict Her
A 97-year-old woman who is battling cancer now faces eviction, too.
Marie Hatch has lived in her Burlingame, California home for 66 years.
Her landlady for six of those decades told her she was welcome to live there for the rest of her life.
But that landlady has now passed away, and Hatch recently received an eviction notice saying she must be out as soon as mid-April.
“I’m scared to death inside,” she told Fox affiliate KTVU. “I try not to think about it. I’ll have a nervous breakdown."
The new landlord has said the house is in a trust that will be sold. To add insult to injury, they also suggest that no verbal agreement between Hatch and the previous owner ever took place.
“No such guarantee ever existed,” said a statement from the current landlord.
Two attorneys are now fighting for Hatch pro-bono.
They say that even though the agreement was made verbally, it is still binding in a court of law.
