Yep. The DA, probably did say to make almost everything a "civil matter." Not just your situation, but many others. Pretty much if the county cannot make MONEY from something, they will not do anything about it. DUI's are important because that's usually a money maker for them--heck they even put signs up for us to let them know if we see a possible money-maker for them. Elder abuse is ignored, perpetual offenders are ignored and your neighbor wants to do ANYTHING, that will be ignored too. Let's hope getting rid of the incumbent will start some engines going. Good luck to you and may Eyster make a difference in PROCEDURE.

re: "What would you like to do if somebody moves in and takes over your house?"

It wouldn't be pretty. But they'd never find the bodies.

Start a project, remove the doors, disconnect the plumbing, electric, phone, take out the toilet bowls, remove the appliances, dig a mote around the house, rent a pitt bull and send it in, let truckers park on the lot.

send them to 7351 sems lane in redwood valley, right off the 101 at the barra winery. 5 bedroom 3 bath empty 3050 sq ft house. real nice neighbors. free well water, hot tub, lots of parking.

Roll up your sleeves and grab a baseball bat. Quite whining and take action.

my sleezeball psycho landlord showed up unannounced on my doorstep in the middle of winter, and demanded access to "inspect" her property with no notice, and when i refused her access, with child in arms, she blew up into a hysterical whirlwind and promptly evicted us.

so i can sympathize with your plight, but not much.

sounds like you still have a roof over your head...

Well in another couple of weeks we will find out if we really have a new DA. If you can hold on until after the first of the year you might get some help. I would also call the Attorney General's office to see if they can force the DA to do something.

It's about time that the fricking justice system went back to being about justice and not the minutia of the "law". Justice would mean these criminals would be arrested and thrown in jail. It's a shame that gang members and criminals have more rights than decent citizens who are their victims.

If I own a property I should be allowed access to inspect it. If you refused you must have been doing something illegal or destructive. I'm glad your landlord threw your ass out. More landlords should have the balls to do that.

As an excellent landlord, I respect the law and give my tenants a 24 hour notice that I'll be doing an inspection.

I also respect the law by giving my tenants a 3 day notice if they are violating the lease.

My experience with my renters has been mostly positive as a result.

Go figger.

We had people put up their own power pole, using PG&E juice, and run a high powered wire over our chain link metal fence and we can't get anyone to act either. Even though they agree it is a life-threatening set up. Their response-"It is a civil matter." Guess it has to get electrified and kill someone before it is not civil anymore. No one wants to do their jobs anymore. They just pass the buck!

This is a terrible situation, but why do you blame the D.A.? It's not a criminal situation. Hire a good lawyer and file an unlawful detainer. Law enforcement officials throughout California do not handle "squatters" - it's one of the hidden perils of absentee ownership.

Who supposedly signed the forged lease? If it was you, a handwriting specialist would be able to prove that it's not your handwriting. Or if it's with a property management company, then that company would have record of it, and if they don't then it's falsified.

well pilgrim,why not just move back on your property? move in with them. trash your own house and all of their belongings. keep that 45 by your side. soon you would be able to move your stuff back in. randy quaid didn't get away with it, so why should this trailer trash get away with it? take back what belongs to you now!!!!!!!!!!

if its your property, or hypothetically my property i would not wasted a moment going there with a few associates and removing them. Be sure to provide proof of ownership on said prop for the police, file charges against them civilly for trespassing, breaking and entering, and have them removed from your land.
Got to remember what happened to the boy in Florida,who was camping on those peoples land, the owners son took a knife and killed the kid while he was in his tent. The kid who murdered him was only 18 and they gave him 56 years <if i remember correctly> in prison for murder. Then again, if you have no witnesses, no bodies, then u got no problem...

You should comment the address and names of the people squatting and falsifying documents, so people are aware of who the criminals are in their community
