“Squatter” Told To Leave Texas Home

Foreclosed Home

ROANOKE, Texas (AP) — A man who gained notoriety for claiming he can live in a $340,000 suburban Dallas house for $16 has been ordered to vacate the home by next Monday.

Kenneth Robinson says he filed an “affidavit of adverse possession” that gives him the right to live in the empty foreclosed home in Flower Mound. He’s spoken to law school students and created a website, 16dollarhouse.com .

But Denton County Justice of the Peace Jay Hand ruled Monday that lienholder Bank of America can force Robinson to leave on Feb. 13.

The bank says it foreclosed on the house last month and wants the 51-year-old Robinson out. And a real estate lawyer says Robinson and others have misinterpreted what adverse possession means.

Prosecutors also are cracking down on others seeking to emulate Robinson.
