A judge on Tuesday ruled that a Beaver County woman who lost her home over $6 can stay in the home rent-free while appealing the sale.
A plan was in the works to allow Eileen Battisti to live in the home, but pay thousands of dollars in rent. However, a new compromise was reached Tuesday in court.
Battisti is a widow who fell behind on her taxes in 2008. Her home sold at a sheriff’s sale when she failed to pay her school property taxes.
Since then, tax records have shown she stopped paying taxes altogether and she now owes more than $20,000.
Battisti claims in the beginning she paid what was due, but missed a late fee of $6.30.
While she appeals, she’s staying put. She just has to pay utilities. Meanwhile, the man who bought the home has to wait until all appeals are exhausted.
