Hi I have a squatter (precarista) issue. there is a vacant lot below me, and its been abandoned for years. The guy who does gardening for gringos in out Bario, tore down part of the brick wall years ago. Now he plants squash on the property. Now a couple weeks ago, a squatter moved in a built a bad word shack. It looks like hell and can be seen from my house. It will make it harder to sell my home and lowers its price. I'm worried that other squatters will move in and make a shanty town out of it. The noise level here has gone up and its not "Pura Vida' any more.... It has no utilities, he is expanding and has a family. Many of us in the barrio have gone to the Muni, and done other things, but we cannot find out who the owner is. THe land has been owned by many in the past, now it seems to be owned by a corporation that is listed in the registry as Anonymous. The Muni will not give us any more info other than the corp. name and finca no. We are all very ticked, we did not pay 6 figures for our homes just to have the view and value ruined by a squatter. Why should they get free land around us? The locals here seem not to care, just us Canucks and Gringos. Even the lawyer who sold me my house says he does n ot know who owns the property. I think he is in on the scam, LOL any advice? cause after 3 months, its almost impossible, even the owner would need to take him to court. thanks Dennis
