A financing company wants the court to issue an order allowing it to repossess a manufactured home that it says a Pontoon Beach couple has failed to make payments on.

Triad Financial Services as servicing agent for Citizens State Bank filed a lawsuit Feb. 5 in Madison County Circuit Court against Christopher and Rene Hartman.

Triad claims the Hartmans entered into an agreement to purchase a mobile home from Country View Home Sales.

Country View then assigned the contract to Citizens, which holds a title to the mobile home, according to the complaint.

However, the Hartmans have made no payments on their home to Citizens, so Citizens demanded the Hartmans return the mobile home to the bank's possession, the suit states.

The couple, though, has failed to comply with Citizens' request, the complaint says.

"That after showing all just credits and refunds, as of January 27, 2010, the Defendant, Christopher Hartman, is indebted to Plaintiff in the amount of $109,741.72, plus late fees $149.82, plus interest of $3,515.49, plus attorney fees, plus costs," the suit states.

In its four-count suit, Triad wants the sheriff to take the motor home or, if the property is not found, to enter a judgment against the Hartmans. The company also seeks attorneys' fees of $2,550. It also seeks the money it says the couple owes it, plus interest at 8.383 percent and late fees.

Rolf Richardson will be representing it.

Madison County Circuit Court case number:10-L-126.
