  • Introduction to Video Content
  • In this video, we witness the eviction of squatters from a home in Chatham after the owner's long battle to reclaim her property. The homeowner, Erica, had been trying to remove the squatters for nearly a year before the sheriff's department finally arrived with an eviction notice. The home, which previously belonged to Erica's mother, was occupied by four squatters and their two dogs. Once Erica entered the home, she discovered a disastrous scene. Belongings were missing, the home was in disarray with mattresses on the ground and trash everywhere. The sink was filled with water and dirty dishes, explaining the sky-high utility bill of over $3300 in just nine months. One of the squatters, Murray, had even changed the locks on Erica and claimed to be a professional squatter. This video sheds light on the challenges faced by homeowners dealing with squatting issues, leaving them to start anew and face the financial burden left behind by the squatters.
