Lone Star Legal Aid Attorney Quoted on Eviction Case

August 19, 2020

Sonja Lee lives at The Steeples apartment complex near Kirkwood and Westheimer. She says that around 2 p.m. on Monday, a notice to vacate was found folded and taped to her door.

The letter goes on to say, "Pay your outstanding balance, or release your apartment and turn in your keys to the leasing office by 6:00 p.m. today. The eviction will be filed promptly Tuesday morning, 8/18/2020."

"This notice doesn't have any power (and) will not hold up in court. Just because this notice is on your door, doesn't mean the landlord is correct in what they've done," said Jon-Ross Trevino of Lone Star Legal Aid. 

ABC13 reached out to corporate leadership at Karya Property Management.

They say they understand the insensitive nature of the flyer and said the manager who created it was disciplined. We are told the flyer was only used one time.

Swapnil Agarwal, the founder of Karya Property Management, says Lee is not under eviction and nothing has been filed against her.
