What's up wid this? Who goes along with such a thing...? Seems strange. Dinner time must be a push around there especially after the owner has spoken out re. what she considers as the 'entitlement' attitude of her, eh' umm guest?
More squatter stories have been in the news. This one suggests a new form of communal living? Per the article the owner had left the property unoccupied for some time... see vid which shows the home, etc.
Forced to live alongside squatter in my Detroit house, woman says
The alleged squatter's name is documented all over the house as Missionary-Tracey Elaine Blair, a write-in candidate for president.
We asked Peterson whether she feels safe.
"I don't know what the capabilities are. We're afraid of her mindset of entitlement."
A squatter doesn't have a legal right to the property, but under the law the homeowner cannot remove a squatter by force. In most cases, the homeowner has to file a civil action in court, prove it's their property and evict the squatter. That is what Peterson is trying to do.
"She thinks that this is a program in Detroit to take people's homes and fix them up and then she gets to keep them," Peterson said.
Since Peterson spent all of her money on the house, she said she can't afford to go anywhere else, and until she can legally kick the woman out, they are forced to live under the same roof.
"I thought if the house is not safe, how can I come here with my child? There's an issue with that. But should I lose my house to a squatter because I don't have rights to my property or should I fight to get it back," said Peterson..."
