Mom and kids evicted from foreclosed home

Queens mom Lynn Manning had been living with her three children in a homeless shelter for far too long.

So when the real estate agent from a city-approved list agreed to take her public assistance rental payments for a shabby Jamaica apartment, she wasn't about to turn him down.

A year later, Manning, 35, is being evicted from the tiny two-bedroom dwelling at 138-31 91st Ave. When she went to Housing Court this month, she found out she had unwittingly been renting a foreclosed home.

Worse still, she may have to return to the city agency that placed her there - the Department of Homeless Services.
