Well I'm going to have a fun day today!
A friend of mine has her name on the deed of a house that the main homeowner has defaulted on. As a result she is legally the owner.
She and the original owner have not been to the house in like 5 months. We found out a few days ago someone is living in the house!
So I'm going with her today over there and get them out. They cannot claim to be squatters or try to say they have squatters rights as they have only been there at max 4 months.
You need to squat on a property for 7 years in the state of Florida before you can claim that. So if anyone else has this problem, don't let them say that to you.
Legally they are trespassing and we can just get the cops to arrest them. But I'm going to talk with them first and see if they will go willingly.
I don't think they will be very happy however.
Good luck and may everything go smoothly.
WOW desperate times I guess
I am going through the same thing ! We just bought my sisters house and now can't get my neice and her boyfriend out ! They have not paid rent. We had to put oil so the pipes would not freeze . They have until the 16 th to move out and today she said NO ! And for us to take her to court . They won't let us in the house . They are up ther having a party now ! I am so MAD !
That's not really the same thing. You are trying to evict your own niece from a home that until recently I assume was her mothers; I could hazard a guess that it was also the family home. Bill was seeking to help somebody remove an actual squatter, as in a stranger who had decided to make a vacant property their home for a while. To me that sounds like two entirely different scenarious, but then maybe that's just me.
Naw me too, I just didn't bother. Too many exclamation points for me.
This person has not paid any rent . Her mother left her there and moved out , never paid any payments on the home. And we were asked to take over the morgage and we did so . She signed the warranty deed over . Now the daughter has to move out. However she won't . She is not a squater but a trespasser I believe ? What do you think ?
It depends on your state. If she has not been there long then she may just be a trespasser. However you mentioned your in a cold state.
Up north you often have to give people more time to get out in the winter. Here in Florida you only have 5 days after your notice. After that a sheriff comes and puts all your stuff on the sidewalk.
...squatter?...wow - it's a sign of the times obviously...when I think of squatters I think of folks who claim land but usually in secluded areas - haven't heard of someone taking over a house
Oh down here in Florida it is actually common right now. There are so many empty houses just sitting for a year or more that it's very tempting.
These big housing developments with empty new houses get lived in all the time. Almost every week there is a story about a whole family getting kicked out of a house.
WOW!...that's sad...folks are having a hard time with no where to go?...probably lost their homes right?...otherwise I don't see any other reason to move in somewhere illegally.
Unfortunatley we are hearing of this more and more. I just dont understand how anyone knowingly "squatting" where they are quite sure it isnt their property has rights. What is the world coming to...
Maybe the guy that defaulted decided to rent the house out for a while…
No, she is in contact with her all the time. She did not rent it out to anyone.
It was just a thought…when I was a kid we had a crooked property manager rent us a house and didn’t bother to inform the owner – just pocketed the money until he got caught. He managed many homes, and one was always “vacant” on the books.
hey doing squats is great for legg development!!! lol aia couldn't resist.
Well we decided to stop by the local police headquarters before going over there.
Because the home is in the process of being taken back from the original owner, they said this would be a civil case, not a criminal one.
They suggested going to the court and filing a order with them. But since my friend has an attorney working on getting her name off the deed we decided it was best to forget about it.
The bank can deal with the squatter once they get it back.
Fascinating situation - viewed from the outside. Sad and frustrating on so many levels.
I hope all works out well. Good luck to your friend! And kudos to you for helping her out.
