s there anybody?


s there anybody?

Come on !

Based on true story.

- It is very expensive .

- Or too small , or intersection ...

Everything is so expensive .

It's awesome God.

What do you say ? Wait?

To stay in California ?

Well, then I'll find a job that

is closer to home.

The new job doesn't pay anything anyway.

I'm make 1/2 of what I did before.

You need this job. We need this


I don't mind the drive.

I do.

We will find a house.

Don't worry.

One more.


This is not what I was expecting,

from what the realtor told us.

There is no way that this house will sell

at this price. Even if it's foreclosure.

Let's look around.


Doesn't look like there's a lot

to fix.


Wow look at this.

It's so pretty.

Oh my goodness. Oh! I didn't

mean to frighten you. I'm sorry.

Hi I'm Lydia Mullens. I live

right next door.

Oh hi I'm Jake.

This is my wife Ally and my

daughter Christine.

Hi, whoo lovely young lady I

love your hair.

Are you interested in this


Yeah yeah we are interested in

buying it.

I mean it seems like the previous

owner took good care of it.

Yeah, well I guess you can say


Sounds like you didn't like him


I don't like to say anything bad

about anybody, but he was a nasty man.

Yeah. Nasty.

Granted his mother was dying. That's no

reason, that's no excuse for everything.

Well he's gone now.

Yeah Thank goodness.

Ah. Here's the realtor now.

Hi guys!

I'm so sorry I'm late.

Of course I grabbed the wrong

set of keys.

Didn't realize it till I was

half way here.

Hi! How are you?

Good to see you.


Hi guys. Hi.

Hi, well I'm Lydia and I live

next door.

Oh Hi. Fantastic.

I'm gonna let you guys go.


Bye. We'll see you later.

Alright guys. Well I got the

keys now. Shall we?


Now as I said before, this

property is not even listed yet.

But the bank wants to move


This is an amazing deal.

It would normally go for twice

as much.

Ah. Beautiful! Isn't it?

I know. Spacious. Lots of space.

Lots of space.

Look at the fireplace.

Oh my gosh.

Oh cool.

You can have a giant party here.

And the house note is just going

to be in your name, correct?

Yes, for now.

You are going to love the master


Not bad.

Here we are.

The master bedroom.


- Again huge!

- Beautiful.

And if you're home alone...

Hear all the doors lock.

And the windows too.

The former owner was something

of an electronics wiz.

Besides the alarm system


He custom installed a state of the art

security system throughout the entire house.

All the windows and doors can be locked

by pressing that one little button.


So you can relax in peace.


Alright, well here is the

dinning room and the living room.

What's with the piano?

The previous owners left pretty quickly

but the piano takes special movers

so they left it behind.

It's all yours if you want it.

We'll take it.

Excellent decision.

Congratulations! Welcome to your

new home.


What do you think dad?


It's a big house.

It's gonna take a lot of up


But, you made a good deal.

I'm happy for you honey.

Thank you.

And, hopefully we don't have to

move again.

Hopefully not.

We will not move again.

Come on.

Come on.


Who the hell are you? What are

you doing in my daughter's house?

Wait a minute!

This is my house.

And now you're trespassing.

Now get the hell out of here and

don't make me tell you again.

I'm going to throw this bastard

out on his ear.

No no no no.

Call the cops.

These files have been filed by an

attorney and they bear the county seal.

They look official to me.

But these are her papers from

the bank.

I understand that. I suggest you

go down to the county clerks office,

and get their opinion.

Cause based on these conflicting


We can't make any type of judgment

or take any kind of action.

If you head over to the courthouse

right now, you should make it in time.

I'm sorry there wasn't more we

could do for you.

Have nice day.

Have a good day.

Yeah you too.

Ok. Go with grandpa.

You guys know where to go right?

Yeah Yeah. We can take it from


Come on.

We'll see you later honey.

See you later pop.

Do you still like vanilla




We need help.

We bought a foreclosed house

legally through the bank.

We went to move in today and the previous

owner was still there claiming the house is his.

Did you call the sheriff's


Yeah they came out but apparently

this guy had an attorney and he

filed some papers saying that

he still owns the house.

Can I see your paperwork?

Yeah thanks.

Forest. Hayes.

Ok. Here it is.

Forest Hayes was the previous

tenant. But he was not the home owner.

Forest is not the owner.

His mother was but she's


So it seems like what his attorney

Martin coughlin is trying to do,

What he has filed... He's claiming that

Mr. Hayes never received the notice of

default on the house payments.

So he has filed for a wrongful


Is there anything we could do?

We, look. It's a bunch of BS.

It's never gonna hold up.

Oh Thanks Thanks.

So, let me tell you what you do.

You're gonna go next door to the

sheriff's station.

You're going to file, an

unlawful detainer.


They you are going to take them, you're

gonna show them all this paperwork.
