This Black Woman’s Home Was Sold To A White Woman For Free Without Her Permission — ‘It’s Almost Like A Death’
Court documents: Moore provides further details that show proof of how they both became at odds over ownership of the home. Court documents from Wayne county showed Langford had only made one payment of $689 and still owed a tax bill set at over $5,000. Even after foreclosure, that number was cut down to $4,449.00. However, Langford is certain she paid down her debt by $1,500 or $2,000.
“I would make multiple payments, like when I’d get my tax [refund], I’d go drop off a lump sum,” Langford explained, according to The Guardian. “Then in between I only had to pay off a hundred dollars, or a hundred and something dollars per month.”
