Volusia man fighting foreclosure
A Volusia County man could be losing his home to foreclosure.
He thought he had a loan modification deal to save his home, but deputies showed up Tuesday and told him to be out by Wednesday morning.
“I just can’t believe it,” Elkins said.
The 71-year-old man was given an eviction notice that said he has 24 hours to move out of his Yule Tree Drive home in Edgewater.
All day friends have been helping him pack up his belongs and taking them to be stored.
Elkins said he got behind on his mortgage payments to Wells Fargo and his home went into foreclosure.
He said he got an attorney, Steven Loizzi, to help him get a loan modification in order to stop it.
“We were ready to send back his signed paperwork and to our surprise, the foreclosure took place,” Loizzi said.
Loizzi said the foreclosure should have been stopped once they were in talks with the bank about the loan modification.
