The owners of a Port Arthur house are being threatened with foreclosure for allegedly failing to pay mortgage for nearly five years. 

LaSalle Bank NA, as trustee and on behalf of the holders of Bear Stearns Asset-Backed Securities I Trust 2004-HE10 and Asset-Backed Certificates, Series 2004-HE10, filed a lawsuit Aug. 19 in Jefferson County District Court against Bobby Perry and Don Perry Sr.

According to the complaint, the Perrys are obligated to pay the mortgage on a house in the 3800 block of Drexel Avenue. The bank alleges the Perrys are at least 56 months behind on payments and owe more than $46,000, with the total amount to pay off the loan listed as more than $98,000.

The bank contends the opportunity to cure the default has expired. It asks for a court order to allow it to proceed with the foreclosure.

Attorneys Dominique Varner, Kristen Baker, Sarah S. Robbins and Aaron Espinoza, of Houston, represent the trustee.
