FAIRFIELD — A U.S. Army major who served in Iraq was stationed at a Kentucky military base when her Fairfield home was illegally rented after a company filed fraudulent real estate documents, changed locks and hired a property manager to rent the residence, a lawsuit contends.

Racquel Junio said in the Solano County Superior Court filing that her parents went to the property in April 2012, discovered the house key didn’t work and saw a “No Trespassing” sign in the front windows. A month later, people were living in the house and police called to the site told tenants they were the victims of a fraud, according to the suit.

Renters paid an advance of $5,550 and were paying monthly rent of $1,850, the suit states.

The property manager from a Santa Clara County company said in an email that he didn’t know the National Alliance of Home Preservation Advocates, the company at the center of the lawsuit, and never met people with the company, according to the lawsuit. He said Junio should contact an investigator for the Solano County District Attorney’s Office, the suit adds.

The property manager said eight other homeowners have complained to the District Attorney’s Office about National Alliance, according to the lawsuit.

Laura Undlin, a deputy district attorney for Solano County in the real estate fraud unit, said National Alliance is the subject of a pending investigation by the District Attorney’s Office.

The address listed by the National Alliance is for a commercial mail box service in Southern California. The company could not be reached for comment. National Alliance of Home Preservation Advocates filed in January 2012 to incorporate in California.

The civil suit states that Junio has had to pay property taxes and homeowners association dues while the house was illegally occupied. National Alliance used a notary public in Vacaville – who is related to an officer of the company – to witness real estate documents used to rent the house, the suit contends.

She bought the house in 2005. Junio, who married in 2008, stated in a declaration filed as part of her lawsuit that she is the mother of two young children and wants to settle down in a home for her family.

Selling the house was complicated because National Alliance filed a lien on the property, the suit said.

A June 18 case management conference is scheduled for the suit, filed in June 2013 in Solano County Superior Court.

    Where's the rest of the story? You know, the part that tells me what the owner did with the house between the time she bought it in 05, and the time she was deployed. Did SHE rent the house out to anyone? Was it empty while she was in Iraq? There's a huge gap in the story,like HOW and WHEN National Alliance came to know of her house, to take possession of her house.$1850 also seems low for rent on a house that nice, imo.Are people still renting her house, while this languishes in the court system? She discovered this two years ago. What's the hold up, aside from the lien?

    Military personnel reading this story might want to heed this warning-----Don't buy a home or retire in California. The people and ''culture'' here are horrible!

    Clearly, the rest of the story isn't available because THIS ISN'T NEWS. Perhaps there just isn't anything real and factual to report on, so reporters like this one are now reduced to tale-telling a bunch of BS in the He-said/She-said narrative. I spent 5 minutes reading this article. 5 minutes that I will never get back. What did that 5 minutes get me? Absolutely nothing. A big fat zero in terms of any information that is newsworthy, factual, or in some way relevant to this community. For all anyone knows, the house could have been occupied by a bunch of Fairfield crack-head squatters who also couldn't be reached for comment. Thanks for the read Daily Republic. Next time, I'll just hit up the Fairfield High Facebook feed for breaking news of the day.
