New Owner, Old Occupant Won't Leave

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Oak Creek Realty Group LLC MO# 1999078273

So my wife has a closing at 1pm today. Only problem is the occupant, who is the brother of the owner, doesn't seem to want to leave. As of this morning he's still in the house and hasn't even taken out the trash much less moved his backside out of the house. What now?

Looks like you got your 50 words in, but tell us MORE!!! What happened? Did you guys call the police? In Texas that illegal squatter would be GONE or in jail!

Wow, I am really interested in finding out how this one comes out. I guess the Sheriff will be involved for trespassing. I would move quickly before the start to tear the place up.

Seriously?? Why won't he leave? Does he have a lease? I guess the new owner will have to evict...

Walter, is the brother there as a renter?  Did he receive proper notice to vacate? Sounds like the seller has an issue that needs to be resolved.

The occupant is living there for free. There is not rental agreement or anything like that. The other agent has been great but the occupant either isn't quite all there or is just really lazy. I've not met him so I don' t know what his deal really is. I just know that we're now not going to close today, we've can't close now until Tuesday because the Title company doesn't have an opening until then. It's still a fluid deal.

Update: We closed late this afternoon after everything that was in the house that wasn't supposed to be there was deposited on the lawn for pickup by Goodwill. What a mess!
