JOHNS CREEK, Ga. - The family of a dying woman says they are scrambling to find somewhere else to live.
The Davidson’s moved into the Johns Creek House after signing a “staging” contract with staging company for reduced rent.
According an email that the family showed Channel 2 Action News, the landlord said they would be able to stay in the home on Parsons Road at least until the end of the year.
Their daughter, Alex Davidson, suffers from complications from Crohn’s disease. She was in hospice care, but wanted to die at home, with her family.
“We hadn’t even gotten out of the car, and she said this is the house,” said Lori Davidson.
Alex and her family moved in the home, which they say was a mess.
“There was mold, rats,” Davidson said.
The Davidsons said they signed a contract with a staging company agreeing to fix the house up, furnish it and pay a reduced rent with the understanding that home would be put on the market and they would eventually move out.
“He sent us a message, ‘Go ahead get your daughter out of the hospital, bring her to the house,’” John Davidson said.
But the Davidsons said several weeks after moving in, the landlord told them to leave.
“He turned around and said he was canceling the contract with the staging company and we had 14 days to move out,” John Davidson said.
Phone calls and email to the landlord were not returned.
Now in addition to finding a new home, the Davidsons are preparing to say good bye.
“God blessed us with 20 years with he, so we can either look at 20 years plus, or we can dwell on the time to come that we won’t have her,” Lori Davidson said.
The family asked those seeking to help to email firstname.lastname@example.org. There is also a website for donations.
