Foreclosure battle: Martinez appeals eviction order

A last-ditch attempt as former firefighter Raul Martinez tries to keep the roof over his family’s heads.
Mr. Martinez has filed an appeal of the vacant possession order issued against him last week.
Last Wednesday (9 May) acting Judge Kristy-Ann Gunn ruled in favour Butterfield Bank, ordering the family to leave their Lower Valley house forthwith.
Now while they await this new legal battle. The family remains in the property. But Mr. Martinez says he’s looking for a place for his family to stay.
“Needs Assessments Unit is assisting us and they have a big, fat cheque to pay anyone right now for a place to stay. But the people who are renting houses, or condos or whatever do not want to take NAU cheques because they have to wait 21 days to collect their money,” said Mr. Martinez.
His case centered around a discrepancy in evaluations. He said the bank sold the home for $285,000 but showed previous valuations of more than double that value.
