Elvis home owner foreclosure. Evicted wants house back

PALM SPRINGS, Calif. - Twenty two year desert resident and eight year Elvis Presley Estate owner Reno Fontana has a much different view of the home he loves.

"I'm on the outside looking in," Fontana said.

Chains and a no trespassing sign show what's left after the sheriff's department evicted him last month.

"It's terribly frustrating, inconvenient beyond terms, I can't even begin to tell you how frustrating this has been," Fontana said.

His investor's attorney accused him of not making his payments and even stealing Elvis memorabilia when he left. We sat down with Fontana to hear the estate's story.

Reno read court papers aloud,"...establishes that by 5-14-08, plaintiffs, us, paid the defendant $114,970.13 which exceeded the delinquent amount due under the notice of default."

"We paid them (bills). Not only did I pay them, the court found we paid them in advance," Fontana added.

Well, the title, source link and author don’t match. I couldn’t locate the excerpt in the story linked.

That may set a record.

Funny.

My friend owns the John Phillips home not too far from E’s home.

He even has the stool John Phillips fell off of, cracked his head and died.

Great property, awesome views...cept I hate PS in the summer.

Stayed at a friends in the dead of July and it took 4 or more hours to cool the home down.

I treat PS the same as Palm Beach. They have seasons and I only go between November and March.

After that, skip it.

Besides, all the best parties are “in season”.

Inconvenient beyond terms???

Looks a bit like D.J. Son?

We still don’t know if it is a real Elvis-house or an Elvis impersonator-house!
