Family forced from home over $150 HOA fee (FL)

A Hillsborough County judge handed down a heartbreaking decision for a Riverview family. The Lopezes are being forced from their home by foreclosure, all because of a $150 missed homeowners’ association payment.  “This is my home and where I grew up. This is where God put me,” said 8-year-old Jessica Lopez through tears.  Her parents, Tina and Luis Lopez, tried to comfort their daughter. The house, in the Rivercrest subdivision is the only home she’s ever known.
