One U.S. soldier’s heartwarming return home to spend the holidays with his wife and newborn has been ruined, thanks to a landlord’s decision to kick him out of the family’s apartment.
Sgt. William Bolt has been told that he can no longer stay in his wife’s South Carolina apartment because he’s overstayed the visitor time limit set by the apartment’s owner, according to the Fox Carolina TV station. Bolt is getting the boot two weeks after his daughter was born.
“I’m stationed in Missouri, and we haven’t seen each other in six months,” Bolt told the Fox affiliate. “What’s the problem with me staying and visiting with my wife?”
Bolt called the landlord callous, saying he has threatened to prosecute him and double his wife’s rent.
“He stated to me that he didn’t care about our situation,” Bolt told Fox Carolina. “He didn’t care about me being in the military.”
The Groves apartment complex landlord, identified only as Chuck, told Fox Carolina that he enforces the rules equally for all his tenants.
But one attorney told Fox Carolina that the visiting limit may be legally problematic.
The clause is vague, the attorney said, adding that the landlord would have a tough time pressing charges, especially since the visitor is the tenant’s husband.
