Apt claiming fraud and lease is null and void

By Tara

My ex-husband, our son, and his then girlfriend were living in an apartment complex in Burleson that was income based. After living there for some time they moved out to a house she owned but had been in disrepair and was now livable. Within a few months the relationship fell apart and she kicked him and my son out of ‘her’ house. Due to the fact he had been a good, previous tenant the complex allowed him and my son to move back. At the time they needed to move back though, now that it was just the 2 of them, my ex was now considered to have made too much money to be allowed to live there; I’m assuming the complex must be under some kind of Section 8 housing rules. In order to help him, the office personnel knowingly altered their file so that it appeared he fit the income requirements.


Apparently they have since been audited and their actions discovered. My ex-husband was told yesterday that he and my son are going to be evicted now, in the middle of the school year, because his lease was null and void due to the fraud.


Can they evict them?

Hello Tara, yes since it was investigated with due process and found out that fraud was committed therefore that can be evicted from the apartment complex. Most probably, this case went through the court and was decided that they are not eligible for the low housing cost, therefore your ex can find another apartment since he can afford it.
