MIAMI (CBSMiami) A South Florida renter came home to find people living inside his house but the family illegally squatting inside said they are not leaving.
The owner of the property on SW 5th street and 49th Avenue said his friend William Ruiz has been renting the house for the past two years and recently started to move out while the house was listed for short sale.
Ruiz went on vacation for two days and said when he came back, he found the locks on the house changed and strangers living inside using his belongings.
Theyre using his bed, his dining room table all his ornaments, said homeowner Luis Camayd over the phone.
The man who moved in with his pregnant wife and toddler didnt want to be identified but said he was scammed by a phony realtor.
He said a lease agreement proves he paid $3,600 to live at the home.
The man, he said, he gave the cash to is no longer returning phone calls.
Im really stunned because the house was set to be sold already. I cant sell the house until we get them out of there, said Camayd.
This stuff is getting out of hand, all across the country!........................
Gun....truck, tarp, dark road, night time... problem solved.
I watched the video. Wow! There are still Caucasians in Miami? Who knew?! ;-)
The property owner needs to remove all the outside doors for “maintenance work” and refinishing.
Squatters normally leave in less than 12 hours after that.
So produce the recipient of the $3,600 and sue for a refund. I can't shoplift freely just because I claim the merchandise was paid for.
The squatter was Hispanic. I’ll be an illegal parent of an anchor baby bun in the oven.
When they put new locks on the doors, it became theft.
This emphasizes the importance of working with a realtor you trust. If you skimp there, you will wind up paying for it.
This scam has been getting popular the past year or so. Watch until you see the owner/renter walk out the front door and slip in through the back. Have a locksmith on speed dial and you’re set. Free housing for at least 6 months until the owner gets a court ruling. Free eats until the food runs out. Free utilities for 2-3 months until it gets turned off and the owner’s credit is ruined. Free pocket change for selling off everything stick of furniture, grandma’s silver set and the kids’ ipads. And just think of all private info that can be used against the owner found in the desk and the mail.
He can start by shutting off the utilities and notifying the utilities of the situation to make it hard to get them turned back on. Without water to the residence, the city can then red tag that property as not fit for occupancy with a 72 hour notice to vacate. The police arrive and out there go.
A woman here in DC just got arrested for “renting out” foreclosed homes. She would drive around looking for empty houses that were in foreclosure, note if the banks were sending people by to take care of the property, and then, if they weren’t, she would break in, change the locks and rent out the house. She had all the fake paperwork for rental, and always demanded a large deposit plus first and last months’ rent.
Her big mistake was hanging around to collect the monthly rent as well.
LOL! And that’s for the realtor!
The headline would be different if I encountered such a problem.
They were probably settled there by the Border Patrol —
A lawless land. In Nigeria there are signs on properties that say, “This house is not for sale.” Trying to prevent the same kind of problem.
The United States and Nigeria.... equivalency in lawlessness and leadership.
“The squatter was Hispanic. Ill be an illegal parent of an anchor baby bun in the oven.”
Yes, but in the video the ‘on-the-scene-reporter’ is Caucasian! ;-)
Isn't that a trademarked brand name of certain real estate agents?
Well, yes....but you must admit she spoke Spanish....so she was a White Hispanic, like Zimmerman :o)
If you are not residing in a home for sale, do not list it with a sign in the yard.
If I came home from vacation and found people in my home it would never make Freeper or anywhere else because no one else would ever hear about it................
