She can't get them out
Aida Byrne is in a bind. She and her husband moved out of a beautiful house in Jamaica Estates. They settled in Miami and were hoping to enjoy life in Florida. But her husband, Dr. Rodolfo Byrne, now is battling cancer. And the people to whom they rented their Queens home, Winston and Elaine Bailey, haven’t paid rent in almost two years. TWO YEARS!
Aida says the rent is 38-hundred dollars per month. And after two years she says she’s owed almost 100-thousand dollars in back rent and expenses. She’s been to court more times than she can count! She got a default judgment to evict the Bailey’s. But somehow the system fails her.
Here’s why. Every time Aida turns around, someone in the Bailey family seems to be declaring bankruptcy. And that can stop eviction proceedings even though Aida has a default judgment against the Bailey’s.
First it was the Bailey’s, themselves. Now it’s their daughter who isn’t on any lease. Aida can’t believe it.
