On numerous occasions over the years, I’ve been asked to list properties that have squatters occupying them. My team and I have been able to deal with this situation without any issues and get the properties vacant. We bring a copy of the grant deed showing who the owner of the property is and also a letter from the property owner authorizing my team member to handle the situation of removing the squatters. My team member arrives at the property as early as possible in the morning, usually, around 6am, and then calls the police to arrive. During these early hours of the morning, the police usually don’t have much activity and arrive fairly quickly. We show the documents to the police and the police ask the squatters to leave.
We also have our locksmith present to secure the property/rekey.
Depending on the situation, we may also fence the property and have a surveillance system installed for ongoing monitoring, to prevent future intruders.
