An old man says that he has spent nearly a decade and $ 70,000 to try to expel his daughter from his apartment so that he can sell the property and move into a nursing home.
Katrina Grundy, 49 years of age, would be squatting rent-free in the apartment of his father Peter in Melbourne for the past eight years.
After the death of his wife a year ago, Mr. Grundy, 84 years old, has tried to install in a nursing home in his hometown of Denilliquin, in the region of New South Wales.
An elderly man desperate has spent nearly a decade and $ 70,000 to try to expel his daughter from his apartment so that he can sell it and move into a nursing home.
But to pay the costs of the retirement home, Mr. Grundy must sell the unit urban that Katrina refused to leave.
“I can’t believe that this will happen. I am sure that it took the little youth that I had left in me, ” said Mr. Grundy to A Current Affair.
“I have to pay in advance in a retirement village more than I would have for this house … I don’t have the right to a pension.
In order to prevent his father to sell the apartment, Katrina has warned the unit without his knowledge.
“It is incredible that anyone who has an attitude persuasive can do it,” said Mr. Grundy.
But Katrina says that his parents gave him the unit eight years ago, and insisted on the fact that she and her father “have no problem”
“Very intelligent and very smart on the legal level – and the lawyers and the lawyer said – this is a person that I have ever encountered.
“She has a tremendous capacity to find things that we never hear about. “
But Katrina says that his parents gave him the unit eight years ago and has insisted that she and her father “have no problem”.
“I think you have the wrong story,” she said when she was confronted by A Current Affair.
Mr. Grundy has taken all possible legal options to try to expel him, in vain.
The pensioner has spent more than $ 70,000 in legal fees during the process.
“The State of Victoria has no other mechanism at the disposal of Peter to get out – he followed what he can do,” said the lawyer of the property Justin Lawrence.
“However, it remains, and it seems that every day she stays, it is another day of injustice for him. “
