The owner of three Port Arthur properties is being threatened with foreclosure for allegedly not making payments on a loan for nearly five years. 

Lillian Wilson, an accounting and bookkeeping company, filed a lawsuit in Jefferson County District Court on Aug. 25 against Patricia Fairman.

According to the petition, Fairman originally borrowed more than $17,000 in August 2009, encumbering two properties in the 1000 block of Abe Lincoln Avenue and another in the 200 block of Gulfway Drive. Wilson says Fairman has failed to make the last 58 monthly payments. The total owed to cure the default is more than $34,000, according to the petition.

Lillian Wilson seeks a court order to proceed with foreclosure. Attorney Charles E. Brown, with Hunter-Kelsey II in Austin, represents the company.
