With foreclosure proceedings against a Westlake Lake home for the terminally ill stalled by legal action, state health officials said the facility will be allowed to operate for now.
Isobel Oxx, who distressed neighbors when she opened the home a year ago, faced foreclosure and possible eviction a week ago on her Leeward Circle property after failing to make mortgage payments to GE Capital Mortgage.
But Oxx said and state officials now say the house was no longer in foreclosure.
"Her notice to be out of the property in 30 days has been put on hold," said Bill Jennings, district administrator of the local branch of the state Department of Health Services. "There is some kind of court action pending."
On Friday, Oxx released a written statement saying the property "is back in the name of May Isobel Oxx, negating the attempted foreclosure sale and eviction notice which was thrown in the door."
