Squatter Equals Headache

Do you want to know what frustration is? It’s having a new home that you can’t move into because the boyfriend of the previous owner will not leave. We got to close on our gorgeous country, retirement, home this past Friday 5/4/12.

Let me start from the beginning.  There once was a geriatric woman who lived in a house with her boyfriend.  She decided she wanted to move to California and sold her house and left her boyfriend behind, wanting nothing more to do with him.  He was supposed to have packed up his things and left, but to our surprise he didn’t.

I can hear the voice in your head saying, “I would call the police and haul his butt out of there.” Guess what I did call the police and found out there isn’t a thing I can do. That was his home and he can stay there until we legally evict him through the courts. I couldn’t believe it when I heard those words coming from the officers mouth.

Here we are with a house that has someone living in it and my entire family and a total of six dogs, two cats, are going to move in on this gentleman tomorrow.  So needless to say it should be a fun time for all.  I will not be posting for a while due to not having internet service.  As that famous line goes, “I’ll be back.”
