The star of The Partridge Family and the Miami Lakes bankers are entangled in a tug-of-war over a $1.35 million-condo that Cassidy bought downtown Fort Lauderdale in 2005.
BankUnited drew first blood by filing a foreclosure action against Cassidy when he stopped making payment on its $900,000-exotic mortgage.
“It’s a strategic default,” says Cassidy’s lawyer, Jeff Harrington. “It just so happens that Mr. Cassidy is not your typical client.”
And Cassidy’s fighting back. He’s counter-suing for fraud. Bank officials declined comment. In their court action, they claim Cassidy now owes $916,488.62.
Cassidy listed the 34th floor condo at the Las Olas River House for $1.1 million.
