Idaho Woman Seeks Compensation for Leveled Home
BOISE, Idaho (AP) — An Idaho woman rented her home to a man she thought had plans to buy it. He instead demolished it.
The Idaho Statesman reported Sunday Shammie Fisher is fighting in court to get compensation for her ruined Boise home. Idaho Supreme Court sided with Fisher in May in her appeal of a lower-court ruling that her insurance company did not have to cover the loss. The court sent the ruling back to the district court for reconsideration.
After she got married, Fisher decided to sell her 1,152-square-foot house. Ron Reynoso signed a one-year purchase agreement in January 2012, allowing him to rent the home with the expectation of buying it. Reynoso essentially planned to flip the house by March 31, 2013. Reynoso then leveled the place.
