Jim Jones mansion foreclosed on…but it was sold for how much?
Rapper Jim Jones and girlfriend Chrissy Lampkin have lost their New Jersey mansion due to foreclosure and it has been reportedly sold for $100.
The mansion was sold at a sheriff’s sale because the couple had failed to make payments on the house since 2010, Bossip reports.
Jones and Lampkin bought the five-bedroom, three-bathroom New Jersey mansion back in 2006 and had taken out a $680,00 mortgage on the house with a 6.8 percent interest rate, which left them to pay $4,467 a month on the house. Unfortunately, the couple were not able to keep up the payments and the The U.S. National Bank Association sued the couple in 2017.
The mortgage detailed that “if he went into default the entire amount would be due,” according to the site. But the bank reportedly settled on the matter with the couple last year to get the home out of foreclosure if they paid off their debt.
But plans to satisfy the debt apparently failed, according to Bossip, because eight months after the agreement, the bank requested that the court make a final judgment against the couple.
The property was sold back to the bank at a sheriff’s sale for only $100, nowhere near the $1,240,017 (including interest payments) Jones and Lampkin owe to the bank, according to court records. Realty website Zillow says the home, which was shown on the reality show “Love& Hip Hop: New York” is valued at $742,000.
