Make it illegal for squatters in California

This petition had 1,190 supporters

My husband and I are living a nightmare in Fair Oaks, California!  We were in the process of selling our vacant house when a squatter moved in.  She has a record of doing this to at least two others in the area in the past.  The sheriff's office will not evict her because it is a civil matter.  It will cost potentially thousands of dollars to retain attorneys to fight her and evict her because in California she has all the rights.  She has a forged lease that she says I signed but will not show it to anyone except the sheriffs that gave her access back to the house and gave her our new key to the front door.  She served me with a Temporary Restraining Order, now I cannot get within 100 yards of my own house!  I have been on Fox 40 news and national news regarding this issue.  No one can help so we must rally together!

The laws must be changed to help homeowners in California.  The laws were recently changed in Nevada after this problem became unmanageable and now squatters are being fined and jailed and removed from the properties within days not years! 

Please sign this petition to send to our lawmakers and change the rights (really?) of squatters, thank you!
