Removing squatters from estate property is an irritating, but common occurrence. The deceased might have had renters, friends or even family members living in real property. After death, if these persons refuse to depart, there is a removal process.

If you are currently serving as a Executor or Personal Representative, or if you are considering taking on that fiduciary responsibility, contact one of our experienced Probate Litigation Attorneys to advise and represent you.
The judge will remove a squatter only if he or she hears the proper evidence. You must provide the judge evidence in the form of documents and testimony. This evidence is submitted subject to the Squatter’s objections. Our experienced Estate Litigation Attorneys will walk you through every step of this complicated journey. Convincing judges to remove squatters is what we do.
Judges take squatter removal seriously, and will only accept evidence if your team has followed proper procedures. The squatter may use a variety of theories to justify staying in the house and procedural steps to draw out the process and increase costs. An experienced Squatter Removal Attorney can assess the situation and help avoid pitfalls. In the end, the experience will save you money.
If an Executor or Trustee believes that a squatter is wrongfully occupying estate or trust property requiring removal they can hire an Estate Litigation Attorney to petition for an order requiring the squatter’s removal. The squatter may then depart, or might require involving a sheriff.

I have worked with Peter Klenk & his associates for some time now and I have found them to be ultra-qualified, knowledgeable and diligent about their work. I highly recommend them.
I was referred to Peter after my divorce to put documents together to protect my assets. He suggested a number of documents that would help protect my children and their future. Also, he put together wills, power of attorney and living wills. I initially spoke with him on the phone, he took 30-40 minutes to understand my situation and explain the benefits of having such documents. After a week or two, I met with him in his office and signed the documents. Everything else was remote phone calls and emails. He re-explained these documents and what whom to share. I am in good hands.
Answered my question quickly and referred me to a colleague that could handle my problem
Like another reviewer, I contacted Peter through his website using the free consultation link, for a question regarding PA inheritance taxes. The question was quite technical and difficult to explain, and the answer was nowhere to be found on the web. Peter grasped precisely what I was asking, and provided a clear, helpful response (with a touch of humor) the very next day.
Peter explained things in a way that was easy to understand. Everything was done in the time frame he said it. Could not have been better!
