Outsquat the squatters. Scout your home and wait til they leave. Make sure you have your deed and id with you. Gain entry to your squated home, quickly change the locks. When the squatters come back and try to get in, call the police and state that intruders are trying to break in. Pretend you've never seen them before. Itll be their word against yours but fortunately for you, you will be able to substantiate your claim. Who's the cop going to believe, you (with your proof) or some nasty looking degenerate claiming to live ina house that already has someone (you) living in it. If they cant afford a home of their own, then they can't afford a lawyer either. And if they do try to goto court. What proof could they possibly have that would outweigh yours? Turn the tables. I had to in the same situation and it worked exactly as I just described. Btw. What the hell were you thinking by giving sqauters time ti move out upon request? When you get legal authorities involved, all your doing is publicizing the matter. It makes it harder for you to execute the plan I just laid out. ... more

In cases like this i have heard of buyers knocking on the door and asking the seller direct. Your agent should speak to the managing broker of the company the listing agent works for.

I have a similar issue. The brochure and online MLS, market the property with two assigned parking spaces. This information is not covered at all in the disclosure document and is not provided in any other information until closing. I found out quite by accident when I asked which spaces are assigned to my property when I was told I have one space deeded and "access to visitor parking". Considering this is a two bedroom unit, would it not be a functional obsolescence to have a single parking spot for a unit that is obviously intended for two occupants?

I went under contract at a price that I was told included TWO assigned parking spaces, and not just ONE. The listing agent's response to my concern was, "1 Parking space is deeded to the unit; 1+ Visitor parking spaces. The office said this was acceptable, We have the due diligence to do our research and find out for ourselves. This is typically how condo units deed out the spots. 1+ Also confirmed that this in no way changes the value of the property. "If" there were a garage THAT would definitely change value, but appraisers do not count the spaces. It is a given to them that there will be at least one."

Whether it changes the value or not, it does change the value for me. Based on the marketing presented by the listing agent, I purchased, in good faith, "two assigned parking spaces". I feel that this listing was falsely marketed to me and I'd like to know what I can do about it.

Bill Gassett answered:
You should never agree to single dual agency ever! There is no benefit to anyone other than the real estate agent. When you agree to dual agency you give up having an advocate in your corner. The agent by law is not allowed to council you.

It totally defeats the purpose of having a real estate agent - someone who will fight hard for your best interests.

Any real estate agent who tells you otherwise is looking out for one thing - their own purse or wallet.

Take a look at the comprehensive reference on why dual agency is so bad for consumers.
