. In our presence he contacted the Housing Authority of Dekalb County to clarify the amount of monthly payment and said that we would have to pay $ 254.00 a month. We were absolutely sure that were going to move in ordinary apartment for low-income citizens. Nobody ever told us that this apartment is on Section 8 and that living there requires authorization from the Housing Authority of Dekalb County, as the current manager states.
Approximately 2-3 months ago management "Ashford Parkside Senior Residences" changed. Previous manager disappeared and, as it turned out all our files and documents that would prove our legal rights to live in this apartment have gone with him. In addition, new manager stated that ourfamily is not listed in "Ashford Parkside Senior Residences" at all and some other people who have never lived there are registered in this apartment.
It became obvious that we are victims of swindlers who cheated us, destroyed all our documents and disappeared. To all our questions such as where is previous managerand whether he has an explanation, the new manager replied that he has gone and it is impossible to find him (!!!) and that the present management of "Ashford Parkside Senior Residences" has no answers to many questions and the only solution is to vacate the apartment.
We are absolutely sure that when we received an apartment as low-income people in 2010 we did not violate any laws and it is not our fault that there were some people in the management of "Ashford Parkside Senior Residences" who committed fraud with apartments. We are old, sick people suffering from chronic diseases. My wife has Coronary Artery Disease and High Blood Pressure. She had a Stroke. And in 2010 she was diagnosed with Leukemia (SLL), in connection with what she is being observed in the Winship Cancer Institute. We have no possibility to move to another place of residence. We have nowhere to go. We receive $ 1011.00 per month per family, which is absolutely not enough to pay for market apartment. In addition, due to age and health condition this stressful situation and moving to another place will be simply deadly for us. We will not tolerate it. It is going to be a tragedy for us.
