PHOENIX, ARIZONA (August 28, 2013) Ryley Carlock & Applewhite Attorneys Stanton Rosenbaum and Brittin Clayton save a family's home from foreclosure after the death of the children's father.
Isaac Tyler died last year, leaving behind three boys that he had raised, Calvin, Tyrone and Spencer Cheeks. After his death, foreclosure investors with the We Buy Ugly Houses franchise dug up distant relatives as potential heirs, feuding brothers, illegal notary stamps and a document bearing the forged, misspelled signature of Isaac Tyler in order to illegally foreclose on their family home.
Last week, the case came to a head in Denver probate court where Judge Elizabeth Leith ruled that investor Bill Hoff acted fraudulently to obtain Tyler's house with a $9,000 payment to stop a foreclosure and a $5,000 cash payment to one of three sons for a deed. She also found that Isaac Tyler's sons are proper heirs, although they were never formally adopted by their father, and returned the house to the estate.
Denver Attorney Stanton Rosenbaum, who took the pro bono case representing Tyrone Cheeks called the case an all-too-common example of "bottom feeders" that prey on Colorado homeowners facing foreclosures.
