Squatter versus trespasser
is an issue that a California couple, Tracie and Myles Albert, have had to deal with for the last 15 months due to the seller of their $650,000 home refusing to leave the premises until…well, this month.
As y’all know, a squatter is someone who puts up box springs in property that he does not legally own and is not occupied by a human and or humans; whereas a trespasser is someone who puts up box springs in property that is legally owned and is occupied by a human and or humans. Tracie and Myles Albert
argue that the man’s title as the seller of the $650,000 home makes him a trespasser, not a squatter, who should have been evicted immediately.
The seller argued that the coronavirus pandemic
has created a chaotic situation whereby he shouldn’t be put out of his house just because he sold it to the Alberts.
Luckily for the seller fella, he had a four leaf clover in his pocket that brought him such good fortunes that he ended up benefiting from the COVID-19 eviction moratorium.
Under the COVID-19 eviction moratorium, the seller of the $650,000 house wasn’t treated like a squatter or a trespasser. Instead, the seller of the house was treated like a small property owner
who needed funds in order to pay for his new home. “This law not only provides greatly needed support for tenants, but also provides relief to small property owners in need of assistance to pay for mortgages, thanks to $2.6 billion in federal stimulus funding,” is what Governor Gavin Newsom
Mm-hmm, the seller fella, there, stayed in the house for over a year which is more than enough time for him to gather the funds e needs for moving expenses.
And the way he got the funds
is by not having to pay for a mortgage or mortgages on the house because he no longer owned the house. The house is owned by the Alberts
who had to pay for the mortgage on a house that they didn’t live in for 15 months due to the seller fella refusing to leave the house after he sold it to them.
Mm-hmm. Fraud is what it’s really call because here the seller fella stayed in the house, for over a year, passing himself off to the state as a “small property owner” when in fact he had sold the house, over a year ago, for $650,000 to Tracie and Myles Albert who are the new property owners. And the fact that the seller fella stayed in the $650,000 house for over a year says that something else was going on with him that led to him using the COVID-19 eviction moratorium to get himself to where he needed to be financially so that he could move on to his new home.
Now, it’s understandable if there are those of you who are saying to yourselves that the seller fella didn’t need any funds for moving expense because he just sold a house for $650,000 which gave him all the funds he needed in order to move.
Well..it’s true that the seller fella sold the house for $650,000 to Tracie and Myles Albert. However, it is also true that we don’t know how much debt the seller fella had to pay off to the bank and or banks.
Folks do get two, three, and sometime four or five mortgages on their houses just so they can fix up the kitchen, the bathrooms, the bedrooms, and or the yard. By time the banks have gotten all of their money, a seller fella, like the $650,000 seller fella, will be lucky to get $6.50 out of the deal.
Mind you, now, I’m not saying this is what happen to the seller fella who sold his $650,000 house to Tracie and Myles Albert. All I’m saying is that folks do a lot of borrowing from Peter to pay Paul while praying to Jesus that they’ll forgive it all. And with the way that puzzle is coming together, the seller fella is looking like the “Peter to pay Paul” type right down to the “T.”
Therefore, a squatter, the seller fella was not because he was the human occupying the home that he refused to leave after he sold it. A trespasser he was because he refused to leave the home that he had just sold to Tracie and Myles Albert for $650,000.
And if it weren’t for this COVID-19 mess, the seller fella would’ve been out of there back in January 2020 and not April 2021.
