Good afternoon,I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. In order to give you a clear and concise answer, I will need some additional information about the circumstances, please. 1. Are you saying that the foreclosure has already occurred?2. And has the foreclosure sale of the property already occurred?3. Who is listed as the legal owner of the property---who would be named on the deed presently on file with the land records office in the county that your property is located in?Doug
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
We are on the deed and title right now. the foreclosure has taken place. the bank isn't filing anything yet because of our appeal. however they are "ready to talk". the foreclosure was not a legal sale, the judge agrees but has not given his order yet. We are going to do a walk threw to check stuff (for lack of better word)
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
neighbors and friends are telling us they think the guy that wanted to buy it over a year ago has moved in.

Good afternoon, As you are still legally the owner of the property you still have legal control over who resides in your home and if there are squatters in the home, you may certainly tell them to leave now, but if they refuse---which in my experience is likely---you may evict them through the court eviction process in the county where the property is located. You might also try seeking the help of the police by filing a criminal complaint against the person in the home for breaking and entering as well as criminal trespass. You may reply back to me using the Reply link and I will be happy to continue to assist you until I am able to address your concerns, to your satisfaction.I hope that I have been able to fully answer your question. Please be so kind as to rate my service to you. That is the only way I am credited for assisting you.I wish you and yours the best in 2016,Doug
