House Squatters Might Be Good for Dallas Real Estate Values: Flower Mound Now Known Nationally as a Ritzy Dallas Suburb

By Candy Evans / February 8, 2012 / 0 Comments

Hey Kenneth Robinson, the folks of Flower Mound might soon be shining your boots. The more this story gets around — the story of the man who tried to get a home by adverse possession for $16, the better Flower Mound sounds: the latest description I’ve heard is “ritzy”. Now Flower Mound is a great little community out there […]

$16 House Squatter: “The Media Put Me In This”, Neighbors Relieved Occupy Waterford is Over

By Candy Evans / February 6, 2012 / 0 Comments

It looks like Kenneth Robinson will NOT be getting a house for $16 after all. This morning, in the tiny metropolis of Roanoke, Texas, at Justice of the Peace Precint #4, JP J. W. Hand ruled in favor of Bank of America, the lender who apparently acquired the note on the abandoned house from Accredited Home Lending, who held the original mortgage. It was that financial failure glitch that gave Robinson the chance to live scot-free — or for $16 — for more than six months in a beautiful Flower Mound neighborhood not too far from the sprawling million dollar estates of Argyle. Robinson was given until Feb. 13 to move, but he is now out of the house. The swimming pool is back to green. Neighbors say he started moving out last Thursday at about 11:20 p.m. and had a van in front of the house this weekend. (And my stalking turned up an empty house Saturday night.) In a phone interview with reporters, Robinson said he was gone and leaving behind a futon and a TV — the futon, he said, belongs to someone else anyhow. (Neighbors say a lot of people have been staying at the house.) He has moved on and is not saying where he has moved. If he wants to appeal the case, he must put up an $8900 bond, which he says he will not do. And a check with Denton County shows Robinson also did not pay the property taxes on 2205 Waterford which were due January 31. He also did not pay the annual $300ish HOA dues.

Did the Flower Mound House Squatter Pay The Property Taxes on 2205 Waterford Drive?

By Candy Evans / February 5, 2012 / 0 Comments

Update: I’m stalking the Squatter. Saturday night I drove up to Flower Mound to see if there were any lights in the house at 2205 Waterford (really nice ‘hood, Robinson’s house is one home in from a major street) and there were none on. Snooped in the mailbox — no mail. Quiet as a church […]
