Real estate client was getting very frustrated. He had a troublesome squatter residing in his investment property.
The squatter was a friend of a former tenant and thus had no legal landlord tenant relationship with client. A standard eviction in Landlord Tenant court could not be filed. Client took to self-help and filed an Ejectment action in Common Pleas court. However, the squatter filed motions to delay the client’s right to take possession back.
The real estate investor-client hired the Real Estate Lawyer team of Thomas D. Kenny and Eileen T. Burns of Kenny, Burns & McGill to fight for his rights. Real Estate Lawyers Kenny and Burns of KBM came to client’s rescue by filing necessary legal paperwork and getting through red tape gaining judgment for client.
At Philadelphia City Hall, 1400 John F. Kennedy Blvd, Philadelphia PA, KBM secured a writ of execution and the Sheriff came knocking squatter’s door and regaining the legal rights to the real estate investor.
A complaint in ejectment is “an action filed by a plaintiff who does not possess the land but has the right to possess it, against a defendant who has actual possession.” Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. v. Long, 934 A.2d 76, 78 (Pa. Super. Ct. 2007). ” A writ of possession is simply the legal means for executing on a judgment of possession.” Johnson v. Martofel, 797 A.2d 943, 947 (Pa. Super. Ct. 2002); Pa. R.C.P. 3160 (“A judgment for possession shall be enforced by a writ of possession….”). The purpose of the writ of possession is to divest the occupying party of possession of the property.
Now real estate investor client can properly safeguard his investment.
