Stratford, Conn. (WTNH) - A man says his 90-year-old mother is being threatened byforeclosure on her Stratford home. He says he is all too willing topay her debt but claims the bank is the one doing thestonewalling.
“I have the name, the time, the date of everyone that Ihave spoke with,” John Puchowicz said. “And this thingjust continues and continues and continues.”
Puchowicz says he co-signed on a home loan with his brother, theStratford condo that his mother lives in. His brother defaulted andnow John wants to step in and pay it off.
It's now been ten months and Puchowicz says that even with allthe back and forth communication, the bank won't let him pay offthe foreclosure.
"The response that came was notification from their attorneysrequesting the court to proceed with immediate foreclosure,”he explained.
News 8 contacted Chase Bank, but they would not discuss personalinformation.
John has written letters to lawmakers as well as to PresidentObama and the White House asking for help. He is worried his90-year-old mother may soon be forced out of her home, and he hasbeen frustrated with the process from the beginning.
"Why when my brother defaulted on the loan, why did they notnotify me at that very moment?” Puchowicz continued. “Iam a co-signer. I was not notified. Why did they turn it over tothe attorneys and force it upon me, all of these legalexpenses?"
So far the family says they have not received a response fromthe White House or President Obama. They say writing the letter wasa move of desperation.
They are hoping they can still head this off, but say theyexpect a foreclosure notice to be tacked to the door any daynow.
