HOUSTON – A house of worship in north Houston has been sued by a Harris County man who claims that it botched the sale of property between them.
In a lawsuit filed on Jan. 30 in the Harris County 281st District Court, Rogerio Gomez faults Northside Missionary Baptist Church for failing to convey a building on which he spent $60,000.
Despite wiring the funds in question to a title company to hold in escrow until the deal could be closed, the suit says, Gomez was told by the church that it could not locate the warranty deed.
The plaintiff adds that he has not heard from the defendant since the statement was made. The scheduled closing date of Sept. 21, 2018 came without Gomez obtaining the title to 0 Curry Rd., according to the original petition.
Consequently, the complainant seeks unspecified monetary damages.
He is represented by The O’Malley Law Firm, PLLC in Beaumont.
