A mother of three, including a disabled child, needs legal assistance defending an ejectment action. Client entered into an oral lease purchase agreement with her brother (OP) for a property, which at the time was owned by OP’s wife. Once client completed the payments and made repairs to the property, OP was to sign a quit claim deed giving the title to client. Client made significant repairs to the property to make it habitable and moved into the home in November 2017 as agreed. She continued to make repairs to the house, and made all agreed upon payments in full. In early summer, OP saw the renovations totaling around $15,000 and raised his asking price for the home by $30,000. When client did not comply, OP filed an ejectment action against her after recording a deed from his wife to himself. Client needs an attorney to represent her in the ejectment action, which will likely include, amending the pro se answer she filed, asserting counterclaims, and raising new matters.
