HOUSTON (FOX 26) - We have an update about a senior citizen who was about to lose her home to foreclosure. Earlier this week our Emily Akin told you about 91-year-old Jane Scott. She was about to be evicted from her Sunnyside home, because the mortgage company said she missed an insurance payment on her reverse mortgage.
Scott was supposed to appear in court next month. But tonight, City Councilman Dwight Boykins tells us the lender has agreed to a settlement with Scott and rescind the foreclosure.
Houston Housing and Community Development has also agreed to help remodel her home.
