Miami Beach man hires security, locksmith to get into his own apartment to kick out squatter
MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – A Miami Beach resident, who says police refused to help him remove a squatter who was living in his apartment for six months, was demanding answers. He had to hire an armed security guard and a locksmith to break into his own apartment since the squatter had changed the locks. Harris said police told him to “go through the legal system” and refused to have the man removed from the apartment. Miami-Dade officers would not remove Stewart. In his final attempt at getting local authorities to assist him in removing the squatter, Harris called Miami Beach Police one last time.
Property owners ask Miami-Dade officials to stop protecting squatters
MIAMI – Property owners are complaining about the advantages that squatters, who don’t have a valid lease or pay rent, seem to be enjoying in Miami-Dade County. “Every Friday, we bring this up, and every Friday we are told that ‘There are no squatters!’ that ‘Squatters are being removed!’ and then ... we hear another story. The property owners in Miami-Dade County are pointing to Mayor Daniella Levine Cava, who critics say continues to prohibit police from executing judges’ orders through her eviction moratorium. Attorney Derek Griffith said the mayor is taking an approach that places a blanket moratorium on the judge’s orders to remove squatters from his clients’ properties. “Criminal squatters’ cases are not covered under the evictions moratorium.”Levine Cava also said the Miami-Dade Police Department is actively investigating squatter cases.
