They're out.
I left a note on the door asking them to call me. The guy called me this morning about 9:30. He assured me that they'd be out by Tuesday. (I've heard that one before.) I offered to pay him $xxx to be out by midnight. They were out by 11:00. They signed a release. I paid them. I changed the locks.

I don't like paying people to not screw me but it was the cheapest out in the long run. Plus it's not job to teach him right from wrong. I'm just glad that the whole episode is over.

I'll settle with the lawyer tomorrow.

Good to know you had a successful (if not satisfying) outcome.

If I, in good faith (sorry to use that term), had signed a lease and moved in, only to find out later I had been conned by a fake agent, I would not think of myself as a 'these people' guilty of trespassing.

Yeah, who the hell refers to themselves in the third person as "these people"? I'd be worried if I started doing that too.

RE: Squatters
Not a happy solution, but way better than no solution.

And I do see squatters the same as thieves, they took your house away from you.

The woman has several drug convictions, and marijuana was found in the house.

Maybe so, but on discovering that fraud had been committed, and subsequently being asked by the owners to vacate the home, you would've done so. You wouldn't have stayed there on the basis of an acknowledged fake lease, and started filling the place with rubbish, letting your cat piss on the carpets, dealing drugs, and damaging the walls.

I'd hate for my saleable property to be destroyed by low-life squatters too. Apparently, were you a landlord in this situation, you'd be more than happy for them to stay on?

I'm a creationist... I believe that man created God.

So now the cleanup begins. First order of business was to get rid of the animal feces. The bathroom sink was full of cigarette butts. I can't believe anyone would (or could) live in that kind of filth.

We've collected about ten 40 gallon bags of trash which will get picked up tomorrow (we hope) by the trash collectors (Friday is our pick-up day). There will be another ten next week.

My wife and I have been spending 3 to 4 hours per day on the cleanup. We are both in our seventies and after 4 hours we are just exhausted.

Depending on the monetary situation, there are easy alternatives. Here in SoCal, I know people who had this kind of situation, but it was renters who had over-stayed. A guy I know hired a family of Samoans to occupy his house for a week. They get a key, walk in and use whatever is available- TV, food, furniture, you name it. Peops were gone in 3 days.

Squatters for squatters. Good idea.

I agree...as long as the paid squatters leave on time. Facepalm
