busybeeburns Posted September 23, 2010 Share Posted September 23, 2010 George Pope returned to his home to find squatters there A gang of Lithuanian squatters are moving into people's homes and changing the locks while they are out. George Pope, 72, took his dogs for a walk and returned to find a family had moved in and changed the locks. And now it has emerged Angie Belalij, 37, also lost control of her home when illegal tenants allegedly moved in after she left to allow renovation work to go ahead. Police and the council say they are powerless to act unless they have a court order requiring the squatters to be evicted. The deadlock leaves the authentic residents in limbo and facing a potentially costly court battle to reclaim their own home. They fear bogus estate agents are watching their homes and waiting for them to go away before moving in illegal tenants.
