Facts: Our client purchased a lot in a tax auction. The individual residing in the house next to the lot had used the lot for many years and claimed it as part of his homestead. This would have entitled him to expand his window to re-purchase the property from six months to two years. He refused to remove his belongings and metal building from the lot. We were able to establish that he was not the owner of the lot prior to the tax sale, so it could not have been his homestead, and he was not entitled to repurchase the property.
Result: We obtained an order of eviction, directing the individual to remove his belongings.
