Posted November 08, 2018 09:06:28It’s been almost two years since Maui resident and Maui Island native Maui Kaanapili was evicted from her home on Maui’s south coast.
But the eviction was more than just a matter of eviction.
As Kaanepili had to pay $10,000 in mortgage arrears to a bank that was unable to honor her payments, she was forced to leave the Maui Islands, her only home in the state.
“When they told me that I was evictions, I was like, ‘Why?’,” Kaanipili said.
That’s when she began a legal battle that’s left the family homeless.
While Kaanapsili and her husband have a lease on a small, two-story house in Maui, the bank refused to renew it and left the Kaanapoises without their home.
They had a legal argument about their ability to pay, and the courts ruled that they could not, so they decided to take matters into their own hands.
They started looking into legal avenues, but the bank did not budge.
Maui Island homeowners don’t have to take legal action if they don’t want to, and so the Kaurapili family is taking a legal fight to save their property.
With Kaanppili’s support, they have filed a lawsuit against the Mauis Bank.
It’s the latest in a series of actions they’ve taken to save and preserve property that has been foreclosed upon.
Since the Mauimis Bank left, Kaanips has worked with other homeowners to put up temporary homes for Maui residents.
She is a co-founder of the Mauia Homes Trust, which provides rental assistance and rental assistance vouchers to help families stay in Mauis homes.
The Kauraps also want the Mauises Bank to be held accountable for its actions, which they say was “reckless, reckless and malicious.”
The bank was granted a default judgment against them, and they were ordered to pay more than $20,000.
The Kaanappis are asking for $3.5 million in damages, but they have not received that yet.
For the most part, they’ve been told the bank’s actions were the result of an error, not intentional misconduct.
In the end, the Kannapis have been forced to take on more than a million dollars in legal fees, which has made them very worried.
They’ve been looking for ways to save up for a down payment on a new home, and to make a downpayment on their new home.
They have already spent nearly $1 million to purchase their new house, but now they’re considering the cost of a down payments loan and mortgage to get their house up and running.
The bank has denied that they were intentionally foreclosing, and instead, they said they just didn’t want anyone to pay any more money.
If they can’t get a mortgage, they will go bankrupt, the family says.
