QUESTION: Dear Legal Wiz,
My mom was literally killed because she gave a Jamaica notice to some squatters. For years we tried to encourage her to get rid of them since they moved on the property. She finally did and the son of the woman who got the notice threatened her which we reported. Before we knew it he came and killed her for real. He’s in jail, but I don know why his family wont just move. Do we really need to take them to Court. Its a long process.
RESPONSE: Dear Hannal,
After speaking with a few persons in similar situation, we found out that the police usually assists in vacating the premises under these situations.
Have you gone to the police and asked for their help. Maybe go to the Inspector in charge of the station and discuss your concerns.
Of course, without asking them to leave, or until they do, there are other ways to handle the situation and its best to either have an agent or an attorney so that you do not interact at all.
The above does not constitute legal advice. Inhouse senior journalists research and discuss with specialists eg attorneys-at-law, as necessary before posting responses. In conclusion, names are changed at times by request.
