Local Family to Remain in Home After Battle with Company
A local family from Nashville recently celebrated a victory to remain in their home after a long and lengthy battle with a rental company that nearly cost the family to be evicted from their home after a local group rallied in their support on July 27, 2018.
The non-profit organization Homes for All Nashville held a rally on July 27 at Park at Hillside, a low-income apartment complex in Nashville, to protest the treatment of Anthonie Carter, a father of five young children. According to the press release, Carter had said that he had secured the money that he needed to pay for the rent on his apartment after suffering a leg injury as a result of being assaulted outside of his apartment. Carter said he contacted Ben Brewer, President of Elmington Capital Group, and spoke to Brewer about his problem in front of the residents of Park at Hillside at a Metro Council meeting on June 3. Brewer told him he would help him solve his problem, but Carter said he received a notice to appear in court where he was ordered to pay late fees and other charges.
