Couple Fights to Evict Woman with No Right to Live in Their House
This sounds like a nightmare! If a woman was living in your house, without your permission, and you had a buyer for the house lined up, you'd want to fast track that eviction, right? Well, an Idaho judge says...nope.
What the what? Yep...she's a squatter, and the judge says the couple can't fast track that eviction. From KTVB-TV in Boise...
A Canyon County couple is back to the drawing board after a judge ruled against allowing them to fast-track the eviction of a stranger who moved into their house without permission.
Brian and Renae Prindle discovered last month that someone was living inside the home at 37 South Westwood they had put up for sale....
The woman, Debbra Smith, said she moved into the home after calling a number on a sign advertising rental properties. Smith said she believed the person she dealt with was the owner - she gave him more than $1,500 in rent and deposits, and he gave her a key to the house.
If the homeowners are telling the truth, it's unimaginable that someone could just start living in your house without your permission, and that you and the police can't kick 'em out pronto.
