Greenville Tenants Forced to Move
Some tenants in the Greenline community of northeast Greenville will have to find a new place to call home this winter.
Bobbie Jean Dillard and her family have lived in the small rental house on Scott Street for years.
"Going on 20 something years, never been behind, never missed a payment, so I don't know what they doing," Dillard says.
On January 10th, the tenants received notice that they must move out within 30 days. News 13 was unable to confirm the reason independently, but one of the tenants says she was told the property was sold and the new company was making room for a new condominium development.
"They sold the land and there were $100,000 condominiums that they're going to build, and they're going to bulldoze these houses down," said Cynthia Spurgeon. "And we don't have anywhere to go."
News 13 spoke with Tinsley Real Estate in Greenville, the company that manages the properties. A rental agent confirmed that the properties have been sold, but could not confirm any new development plans. The agent also said the agency is working to help the tenants find a new home at one of its other properties, but has not been able to do so thus far.
