Buying Investment Real Estate Selling

Can This Happen To Your Vacant Property?

Tuesday night, CBS 4 reported on a homeowner whose house has been taken over by squatters.  According to the story, the house was sold and when the Realtor went to the final walk through before closing, she found people living in the house.  The people living there claim they were duped and rented the property.

During the height of foreclosures, many properties had sqatters move in.  This house, however, was not in foreclosure, was actively listed with a real estate agent and had probably had activity with showings and, most likely, inspections.  The owner had to hire an attorney.  The “tenants” have 40 days to move out.
