Adverse possession was one of the only real property subjects I could tolerate. But every time I read a case, I just could not help but wonder, “who actually would leave their house?” Enter the Housing Crisis of 2008, and homes became the proverbial hot potato with people trying to pass the keys.
Enter Kenneth Robinson, a man who purchased a $300k Texas home for $16. Say what?! The owners of this beautiful home in Flower Mound Texas “abandoned” their home when it went into foreclosure. Mr. Robinson moved in this home as a squatter and began researching his rights under the nifty little doctrine of adverse possession. He believes that his action will prevail under Texas’ adverse possession law.
