Tuesday is Decision Day for Octo-Mom Nadya Suleman.
The man she bought her house from, Amer Haddadin has threatened to file legal papers to start the foreclosure process by the end of business Tuesday, claiming that Nadya’s father Ed Suleman hasn’t made good on a $450,000 loan. Nadya’s mom Angela told RadarOnline.com on Tuesday morning that her daughter is “definitely keeping the house.”
And she says “some person who wasn’t honest is going to be sued.” She is referring to Haddadin, who the family claims did not disclose water leaks and roof problems. And Angela now says the repair costs were in excess of $10,000.
Octo-Mom is leasing her Southern California home from her father who bought it for $565,000. The home in La Habra was signed over last year to Ed Suleman who was supposed to pay about $4,000 a month plus a final balloon payment of $450,000 this year.
The family was reportedly late on recent payments and also missed the balloon payment so the mortgage holder is threatening foreclosure.
Nadya’s attorney Jeff Czech said on Monday that the octuplets and Nadya’s six other children will not become homeless. He pointed out that even if foreclosure happens, it could take up to three months. He released a statement about the situation and even had some fun alluding to The Old Woman In The Shoe (she had so many children she didn’t know what to do!). Here is Czech’s entire statement:
“The buyer (Nadya Suleman’s father, Ed Doud) and seller (Amer Haddadin) of Nadya Suleman’s house are disputing the buyer’s allegations that seller failed to disclose several major defects with the property at the time of sale. For example, the rain water was improperly drained toward the house, resulting in one head injury to a child along with water damage to personal property. Buyer currently owes the seller approximately $450,000, representing the balance of the mortgage. However, when the non-disclosure concerns were raised with the seller, Mr. Haddadin instead demanded $300,000 more for the house because, “Nadya Suleman is a celebrity” (No kidding).
Ms. Suleman remains hopeful that buyer and seller will amicably resolve their differences regarding the mortgage payment and of course hopes to avoid a foreclosure, but at the time of this release, there has been no resolution. Nadya does not consider herself to be that old and she definitely has no desire to live in a shoe.”
