CHARLESTON -- An Ohio couple is suing the owner of their former residence for failure to pay for the contents of the condominiums.
James Hamblen and Ellen Hamblen leased two units of the Terrace Park East Condominiums in Charleston from Dawson Land for approximately 11 years, according to a complaint filed June 2 in Kanawha Circuit Court.
The Hamblens claim at the conclusion of their lease, they decided to move to Ohio to be closer to their son and agreed to sell the majority of the contents in the units to the defendant because they could not easily transport the contents to Ohio with them.
Dawson Land agreed to pay a sum of $3,600 to the Hamblens for the property at a rate of $100 per month, according to the suit.
The Hamblens claim in addition, although they had paid a $1,100 security deposit and dutifully maintained the units for 11 years, the defendant only refunded them $725.
The Hamblens are seeking damages in the amount of $3,977. They are being represented by Stephen P. Swisher.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Louis H. Bloom.
