Disabled Veterans home deal hits snag

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Last week KCBD NewsChannel 11 told you about the community volunteering to help a disabled veteran renovate a home for he and his children. Alfonso Perez, 42, had been separated from his three kids due to limited income and living space. He purchased a mobile home from Jose Sanchez off craigslist for $3,000 and J & P movers organized volunteers to help clean and move the trailer to Perez's land in West Lubbock County.

The day after our story aired, another man came forward with the title of the home. Shawn Fuller owns Integrity Homes out of New Deal. He sold the home to Sanchez, years ago, but Sanchez stopped making payments. Legally, Sanchez was not in possession of the home, and had no authority to sell it. 

Fuller contacted Sanchez and Perez to notify them that he owned the home. Eventually, Fuller and Perez were able to negotiate on a slightly higher price for the home. Fuller claimed it was to cover title fees and closing costs.

Perez says he has no hard feelings towards Fuller. Perez also has considered taking legal action against Sanchez. When we contacted Sanchez, he gave us a statement: 

I am deeply sorry for what Alf and his family have been put through. I thought what I was doing was okay since mobile home had been left abandoned by myself and FPM. I have agreed to return all money given to me by Alf and have since heard that Shawn has agreed to help out Mr Perez. Integrity Homes once helped me out of a bad situation and Shawn is doing his part again. Again I am sorry for what has occurred and am trying to make things right.
Jose Sanchez

    Barbara Bush came up with the idea of focusing on literacy as first lady during a jog in 1978, the year her husband considered his first run for president.
