NEW CUMBERLAND – A Hancock County couple's lawsuit says a defendant has failed to remove a manufactured home from a piece of property the plaintiffs purchased almost two years ago.
Daniel L. Lyons and Carol A. Lyons filed a lawsuit April 18 in Hancock Circuit Court against Tammac Holdings Corp. and McFarland Family Trust, alleging breach of promise, unlawful holding over and trespass.
According to the complaint, the couple bought a seven-acre parcel in New Cumberland at auction on Nov. 20, 2014 from the McFarland Family Trust. The property contains a modular home purchased by the previous owners, according to the complaint, but the suit says the home’s ownership reverted back to manufacturer Tammac when the owners filed bankruptcy. The home remains on the site, despite Tammac’s promises to remove it, causing diminished value and enjoyment of the plaintiff’s land, the suit says.
The Lyonses seek a jury trial and damages of $50,000, plus authorization to have the home disposed of. They are represented by attorney Michael E. Nogay of Sellitti, Nogay & McCune PLLC in Weirton.
Judge Ronald E. Wilson is assigned to the case.
