You have the right to remove all your belongings from the property and move out before the court officer forces his way into house and puts all your belongings in a dumpster. Best advice: move out of the house you don't belong in.

You're not gonna like the answer...but try 15 years and an expensive real estate attorney and a trip through Circuit Court.. You also have to assume all liabilities associated with the property and pray that in year 14.9999 the real owner doesn't evict you.…

Gary, it could be that Andre is a owner or potential buyer looking to evict squatters although your advice is 100% correct and I agree. Andre, you may need to go through a formal eviction costing a substantial sum. The eviction process can take a few months. Hopefully, some Michigan/Detroit folks will chime in. Good luck.
