The nation is suffering and people are “making a way where they can”; not by robbing and stealing, but squatting. There are foreclosed homes in every type of community and if people start doing their research, it appears they can be in a nice home with little to no money down…ever! Foreclosed homes have been easy prey for squatters, but squatters have been removed once the jig is up (and even that isn’t that easy due to something called “squatter’s rights”). But one Texas man is reaping the benefits of his informal education on Texas law. He walked in a $330,000 home and took up residency where his neighbors aren’t being neighborly at all.
Kenneth Robinson of Flower Mound, Tx., must’ve been looking at this house for some time as it sat on the market for over a year without any sign of new ownership. During that time, Roberson simply filed a little paper of “adverse possession” with the city and walked through the door with a key he claims he found. The house has no water or electricity, but according to the law, as long as he stays in the house for three years, he can ask for the title. Really? Time to go house hunting, right?
The neighbors are in an uproar because they didn’t think of this. They’re trying their best to get him out of there. They want him to put up the dough just like they did and he has no plans on doing that. Check it out.
