Ridge Bank and against Hope for Home & Family for immediate

The Tribune reported on June 16, 2013 that in the midst of Hope for Home & Family’s code violation issues, Blue Ridge Bank and Trust Co has filed a Verified Petition of Landlord For Possession in the Circuit Court of Jackson County against Hope for Home & Family. http://bit.ly/127DyU6
The petition states that as of January 28, 2013, Blue Ridge is the owner of real estate located in Lee’s Summit at 100 NE Tudor Road, Suite 109. And it further states that Defendant, Hope for Home & Family ("Defendant"}, is a Missouri non-profit corporation, in good standing, which may be served upon its registered agent, L&D Business Services, Inc., located at 1308 NE Windsor Drive, Lee’s Summit, Missouri, 64086. Defendant executed a lease with its former landlord, Fischer Family Property LP on November 16, 2012, with the lease term beginning on January 15, 2013, requiring Defendant to pay rent of $1,500 per month.
Blue Ridge has not been paid any rent by the Defendant and the Defendant is currently disturbing other tenants within the environs of the premises.
On May 30, 2013, Blue Ridge sent Defendant a letter demanding Defendant quit possession of the Premises within thirty (30) days. The Defendant has failed to restore possession of the Premises to Blue Ridge. Blue Ridge asks for the immediate possession of the Premises set forth above; for attorney’s fees, special process server fees, and Blue Ridge’s costs; and for such other relief deemed just and proper under the circumstances.
