- Ismael and Angelita Ramirez claim they bought the home in 2003 and regularly made $700-a-month payments

- The couple said they have been unable to get any legal assistance and feel powerless
An elderly Californian couple claim they have been evicted from the home of two decades after their son transferred the ownership behind their backs.
Ismael and Angelita Ramirez claim they had been regularly paying $700 a month toward the home in Fresno but in April 2023, the woman who bought the home served them with an eviction notice because she wanted to sell the house, according to Fox 26.
The Ramirez’s claimed they bought the home in 2003 with the help of their son, Jesus Ramirez and another person because they were unable to speak English.
However, they said their names were never put on the deed and their son signed the title as the sole owner.
Ismael told Fox26: ‘He told us … it wasn’t necessary. And well, since we don’t know English, that’s where they lied to us.’
The home is estimated to be worth about $260,000. It’s unclear how much Jesus sold it for.
The couple also said that they never thought their son would do this to them.
‘We thought, why did our boy do that us if he knew the house was ours?,’ Ismael said.
The eviction notice stated the new owner was kicking them out and selling the property.
The couple claim they have been unable to get any legal assistance and feel powerless because as soon as lawyers hear the property was in Jesus’s name, they refuse to take the case.
The couple are now trying to raise funds on GoFundMe, set up by their daughter Fabian Ramirez. The page has raised $30,170 as of now. They have set the goal at $45,000.
