PHILADELPHIA – A property owner alleges that a mortgagor, the servicer of the mortgage and others sent representatives to his property without his permission.
George Black filed a complaint on Sept. 7 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against Assurant Field Services LLC, Assurant Field Services LLC, Rushmore Loan Management Services LLC, NRZ Reo IV Corp. and Citibank NA alleging conversion, trespass civil conspiracy and unjust enrichment.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff owns an investment property in Philadelphia that he alleges the defendants' representatives entered without permission and removed personal property on March 7. The suit states the property had been scheduled for a sheriff's sale on that date but the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas on March 6 postponed the sale to May 2.
The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible because the defendants allegedly failed and refused to submit the names of their representatives that broke into the plaintiff's property so the plaintiff could file charges.
The plaintiff seeks compensatory damages of more than $125,000 and punitive damages, court costs and any further relief this court grants. He is represented by Valyrie L. Patton in Philadelphia.
