Soldier visiting wife and new baby can’t stay in her apartment
A soldier returned home in Central, South Carolina for the holidays to see his wife and new born baby. However, FOX Carolina reported Sergeant William Bolt is being kicked out of his wife’s apartment because the landlord said he is overstaying the time allowed for visitors.
Bolt is stationed in Missouri, but his wife lives in Central. Their daughter was born two weeks ago.
Bolt told FOX Carolina the landlord at The Groves Apartment Complex in Central told him he had overstayed. The agreement that Bolt’s wife Lily signed states visitors can’t stay pass seven days.
“I’m stationed in Missouri and we haven’t seen each other in six months. What’s the problem with me staying and visiting with my wife?” Bolt said.
The landlord, whose name is Chuck, told FOX Carolina he enforces that rule for all his tenants.
Bolt’s name is not on the lease and even though he is a spouse visiting, the landlord said he’s not allowed to stay. Bolt claims the landlord threatened to press charges and double his wife’s rent if he stayed.
“He stated to me that he didn’t care about our situation, he didn’t care about me being in the military,” Bolt said.
