Octuplets mother likely to avoid eviction, attorney says

A deal appears to be close that would prevent octuplets mother Nadya Suleman and her family from being evicted from their La Habra home.

Last month the home's owner, Amer Haddadin, said that the Suleman family had fallen behind on their house payments and that Suleman could face eviction if the matter wasn't taken care of.

He said Suleman's father purchased the home under a deal in which Haddadin would carry the $450,000 loan for a year until the family could gather enough money to provide a substantial down payment.

A year later, he says, Suleman's father has not provided the money.

Suleman’s lawyer Jeff Czech told the Associated Press on Wednesday afternoon that some unspecified financial deals have been arranged and that both sides hope a deal can be reached soon that will keep the  family in the home.

No details were available, and Haddadin could not be reached for comment.
