A few facts that you may not have been privvy to, Mr. Anderson told the next door neighbors that we would be his new neighbors.....leaving everyone including us the impression that he would be working out an arrangement. He contacted me at around 7:00 p.m. the next day and demanded I pay him $2, 000.00 in cash for good faith. I explained that I could not withdraw that much money after business hours and offered to pay him what I thought I could withdraw from the ATM $400.00 ....I was only able to take $300 as that was my banks when he got agitated I wrote him a check for the difference. We agreed to the quit claim deed scenario because, I pointed out that he had neglected to hire an attorney to fight the foreclosure, neglected to pay his taxes, which I was prepared to do before I was arrested...I had the money set aside in an account, and I was concerned he would do the same thing he has been doing, ignore the bank and not deal with the foreclosure, if we just paid rent, then I would be out in a matter of months from the banks foreclosure, additionally I believe it is against the law for him to collect rent while the property is in foreclosure. I also reminded him all the work including replumbing the well, the purchase of a water system and having the system installed. on top of the fencing, pool and landscaping.The property was open when we took possesion, I never broke in, and Mr. Anderson did not have access as due to his neglect and abandonment, the bank, who did not own the property hired safeguard properties,(who deemed the property vacant and abandoned) to check in because of complaints that the property was not being maintained. My wife qualifies for a VA loan, and we were told by freddie Mac earlier this year when we tried to purchase a property that we liked from them, "if you were already in the house we would have to work with you, in that scenario we would sell you the property" I figured if we established adverse possession or obtained a quitclaim deed, when a final foreclosure came through eventually, the bank would let us buy the house. We contacted the lender and advised them of what we were doing and gave them our contact info.
Please feel free to contact me if you want some additional clarification, like how devon anderson had been telling us and everyone else he is a police officer(he was a DOC deputy that was fired in 2003) and how the police that showed up would not listen to anything we had to say, did not look at our evidence told me shut the f up or I will taze you, then threw me in the back of the police car.....and admitted he did not know the law for adverse possesion. Which should have been a civil matter, which was reiterated by the deputy that helped us get our property back....he kept saying that the whole time....and the Anderson's stole 3 televisions from us, which is in the supplemental report that the deputy who assisted us wrote.

If I was the owner I would hire a couple of 'goombahs' and I'll bet he would move right quick!
