HOUSTON — Attorneys have called for an emergency hearing to help save one Humble grandmother from being evicted.
Harris County Constables have told 70-year-old Shirley Crew they will move forward with eviction Thursday, unless anything changes.
Crew’s new attorneys are now filing a restraining order against the developer who has claimed he now owns the rights to the Crew property and property belonging to adjacent neighbors.
Crew’s attorneys say they’ve only recently began going through the case and need more time to present their findings before a judge.
As we’ve reported before, the land on Humble Westfield Road next to Crew’s home was bought in an auction two years back.
Property records however showed a discrepancy on the addresses listed for Crew’s home. While older records described the home as being on FM 1960, other records listed the home at Humble Westfield.
Without her knowledge, Crew says her home became part of a purchase that should never have been valid in the first place.
Crew’s daughter-in-law, Charlecia Johnson says while time is running out, they’re placing faith on their new attorneys to straighten the mess.
“We do feel hopeful that they can figure it out, that they can figure out what avenues to take and undo what was done with the previous attorney. Now it’s a time game, but people still have to be held accountable,” said Johnson.
The hearing begins at 8:15 a.m. in the Judicial District Court.
