Superior Court of the State of California For the County of Stanislaus
Kelei Caspersen, a single person, Plaintiff, vs. Robert P. Baker and Paige M. Baker, a married couple, and Does 1 through 10, inclusive, Defendants. Case Number: 2027255 FACTUAL DECLARATION OF PLAINTIFF KELEI CASPERSEN IN SUPPORT OF EX PARTE APPLICATION I, KELEI CASPERSEN, declare as follows: 1. I am the Plaintiff in this action, and the Petitioner for relief in the ex-parte application. 2. I live in Turlock, California. 3. Robert P. Baker and his wife, Paige M. Baker (hereinafter, “Defendants”), failed to return down payments made in a purchase agreement with myself regarding real property located at 1725 Carleton Drive, Turlock, California, 95382, (hereinafter, “Property”), as required by the agreement. 4. On or about July 3, 2013, Plaintiff and Defendants entered into a “Residential Lease or Month-to-Month Rental Agreement” (hereinafter, “Lease”) concerning Property. The parties also, in conjunction with the Lease, entered into other agreements memorialized by a standard California Association of Realtors Option Agreement (hereinafter, “Option Agreement”), a California Residential Purchase Agreement, and Joint Escrow Instructions (hereinafter, “Purchase Agreement”). The Option Agreement called for a down payment of $50,000.00, referred to in the Purchase Agreement as “Option Money.” Plaintiff paid that amount to Defendants on July 15, 2013. The Lease Agreement called for monthly rental payments of $2,300.00 per month, of which $300.00 per month would be added to the down payment. To date, Plaintiff have paid a total down payment of $52,325.00. 5. On or about March 1, 2014, the parties modified their agreement to cancel the purchase of the Property by Plaintiff to allow Defendants to sell the Property to another party. The Memorandum to the Option Agreement and Addendum to the Option Agreement (hereinafter, “Modification”), called for the down payment money paid by Plaintiff to be refunded from the proceeds of the sale of Property from escrow, and with any remaining balance to be paid within two years of sale. 6. After the Modification was signed by all parties, Defendants did accept an offer on the Property. The Defendants opened an escrow account on the Premises on or about March 17, 2014, with Stewart Title Company. 7. Plaintiff properly registered the claim on the escrow with Stewart Title Company. The payment from escrow was only going to provide some $20,000.00 toward the claim, but some is better than nothing, and the Modification then called for the balance to be paid over the next two years. 8. Thereafter, Defendants shut down their escrow with Stewart Title, and moved the escrow to Old Republic Title. The escrow was completed and closed only three days later. 9. Defendants did not inform Plaintiff of the change in escrow companies, nor did they instruct the new company to pay the legitimate claim of the Plaintiffs. 10. Thus, Plaintiff did not receive any payment from escrow as agreed, nor has she received any payment from Defendants toward the refund of the down payment. 11. In addition to the failure to pay, the Plaintiff has been unable to buy another house because she lacks the down payment. The prices for homes has risen sharply in the last two years, and the failure of the Defendants to pay as agreed has kept the Plaintiff from participating in the increase in value a home purchased two years ago has undergone. 12. On or about August 2, 2016, Plaintiff and her then-husband Daniel Curry divorced due to irreconcilable differences. The stress and strain from the loss of Plaintiff’s entire life savings was a direct cause of her divorce. She lost her husband of fifteen (15) years primarily, though not solely, due to incredible strain this financial loss created. 13. Worse, Plaintiff has suffered nightmares, nights of insomnia, and other symptoms of depression due to the loss of such a large sum. 14. I am in need of this Ex Parte hearing because I need the money that Defendants agreed to pay, to secure my financial security. I declare under penalty of perjury under the laws of the State of California, that the foregoing is true and correct.
