Wells Fargo Bank on Tuesday filed a mortgage foreclosure complaint against disgraced legislator-turned-real estate agent and part-time actor Jeff Habay, court records show.
According to the complaint filed in Allegheny County Common Pleas Court, Habay, 48, and his wife, Nubia, haven’t paid the mortgage on their home in Shaler since March.
The six-term state legislator resigned from the Pennsylvania House in 2006 following his conviction for using his office to perform political campaign work on state time. A year later, he pleaded no contest to charges of giving false statements to police for claiming a political opponent mailed him anthrax.
He served about a week in jail, two months in a halfway house and two years on house arrest.
The complaint claims the Habays borrowed $143,925 to buy the two-story red brick Colonial in 2001. They were supposed to make $1,006 monthly mortgage payments until 2031. The bank claims the Habays owe $164,505 in principal, interest and late fees.
Habay said he has taken time off work to care for his son, who has autism, and “that has limited our income level.” He said he is working with the bank on a loan modification and hopes to get back in good standing within a month or two.
