“I don't know where we are going to go,” Gary Buford said. “We are just in limbo. I'm pretty disgusted. It just seems like it's always ‘wait a little longer.' I'm just getting really tired of waiting. It's time for something to happen.”
The Bufords thought they'd been given a three-month forbearance by their mortgage holder, Bank of America. But Gary Buford said he got a notice this week that the company had turned them over to a collection agency.
“I'd like to tell them to come and get the house,” Buford said.
The couple have been getting some help from U.S. Rep. James Lankford, R-Oklahoma City, whose staff has tried to coordinate meetings between the Bufords and the various companies involved.
Gary Buford said he's not a litigious man, but he expects he will have to get a lawyer and take legal action if he is going to get any relief.
“It aggravates me,” Buford said. “I believe you should stand by your word.”
