PHILADELPHIA – An equipment leasing firm claims it is owed more than $4,300 from a Maryland physical therapy operation and one of its Florida-based guarantors, after their alleged default on a lease agreement entered into five years ago.
Beneficial Equipment Finance Corp. of Chester Springs filed suit in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas on Oct. 16 versus White Marsh Healthcare Physical Medicine (doing business as “Baltimore Pain Relief Center”) of White Marsh, Md. and guarantor Timothy J. Gober, of St. Petersburg Beach, Fla.
On Oct. 31, 2012, the defendants entered into a lease agreement for $19,063.20 with Americorp Financial LLC, and the defendants would make 60 monthly payments of $317.72 over a period of five years, the suit says. This did happen until Feb. 28 of this year, when the payments allegedly stopped and the defendants defaulted on the lease agreement.
With an unpaid balance of $3,494.92 and attorney’s fees of $873.73, the lawsuit states that the total cost owed by the defendants is $4,368.65. Per the plaintiff, it alleges several demands have been made of the defendants to repay these costs, but these have proven unsuccessful.
For counts of breach of contract and unjust enrichment, the plaintiff is seeking damages of $4,368.65, plus interest, costs and attorney’s fees that may accrue and such other and further relief as this Court may deem equitable and just.
The plaintiff is represented by Robert L. Saldutti of Saldutti Law Group, in Philadelphia.
