The Dodge Street home of a former Kent City Councilman has escaped foreclosure auction for now.
The home of Robin Turner at 327 Dodge St. was scheduled for a sheriff’s sale this month after Wells Fargo Bank asked a Portage County judge for a foreclosure order in January.
Wells Fargo asked for the property to be withdrawn from the sheriff’s sale scheduled for Sept. 16 stating that Turner’s case was under review “for all loss mitigation options,” according to a court filing dated Sept. 3.
Turner resigned from his position as an at-large member of council in November 2012, but he sought re-election to the position in the May 2013 Democratic primary. Turner did not receive enough votes to advance out of the primary to the November ballot.
Wells Fargo claimed Turner defaulted on the mortgage for the property and owed more than $46,000, according to the January 2013 foreclosure filing.
Turner could not be reached for comment.
