Nercy Yorley Guerra Montes is a humble woman, the youngest of eight siblings. She lives in the 23 de Enero sector of San Cristóbal, Táchira state, in the house of her deceased parents, where she has always lived and worked.
Today, three of his seven brothers want him to vacate the dwelling, despite knowing of his delicate health condition and that they are in the process of dividing that property, where as children they shared with their parents. Now that house is an estate.
Money really has no friends, not even brothers. Nercy says that she has no other place to live, much less a place to set up her small photocopying business.
Even so, three of her brothers look for a way to get her out of the house that has been her home all her life.
After seeking legal advice, Nercy wants to warn the community, especially those interested in buying the property where he has lived since he was born, that it cannot be sold because he is in a legal administrative process to divide the rights in equal parts, therefore it cannot be acquired through any other means. At least for now.
“A sister is offering it and we want to make public the legal situation in which it finds itself,” he said.
With her eyes crystal clear from the tears that appear and her voice broken by a knot that does not let her cry out, Nercy said that she is a victim of harassment and harassment by those three brothers who intimidate her and demand that she be evicted from the house.
The situation is getting out of hand. He fears that at any moment the verbal aggression will become physical. “They threatened me saying that if I don’t close the business and evict them they will break my computers,” she said.
Distressed and afraid, she closed her small store, but that is her only livelihood, so a few days later she reopened. Clearly advised by a lawyer who insisted that at this time it is not feasible to sell the house because it is subject to legal actions to equitably distribute the rights.
Nercy’s health condition is not ideal. She recently underwent surgery on one kidney and the other is affected, so any physical exertion can affect or accelerate the problem.
The emotional state in which she is immersed because of the demands of the three brothers also harms her health, not only emotionally, but also physically, but apparently they don’t care about that.
Nercy, and the rest of the brothers -five with her- only asks that they wait for the division or equitable distribution of the property rights and that they not be moved from the premises where their business operates. The only means of support that she has. It also requires at least one or two rooms.
As he explains, it is a large house with many spaces, therefore he considers his requirement fair. In any case, he thinks that the most appropriate thing is to comply with what is stipulated by the laws of Venezuela.
With great regret, she blames the three brothers for any damage that she or her few assets may suffer, who are demanding the eviction of the property under threats, to which she also has rights as one of the eight heiresses. (BM)
