Some people are damn bold and would do anything just to survive. According to reports, one squatter named Natasha Timmons moved into the home of female army reservist Mikiya Barber after she was called up for active duty.
The report continues that it cost Barber a whopping $50K to get Natasha Timmons kicked out of her home.
A squatter who drives a fancy SUV took over an Army reservist’s Houston home after she was called up for active duty, with the takeover costing the soldier $50,000.
Mikiya Barber, who bought her three bedroom, two bathroom Houston home in May 2022, claims Natasha Timmons moved into the house as a tenant as she was called up for active duty in Florida last fall.
Timmons signed a lease and paid the rent of $2,000 for the first two months of her tenancy.
However, Timmons, who neighbors said drives a late model Mercedes SUV, failed to make further payments when they were due but would not move out of the property.
‘She is living in the house and making it known she’s not leaving my house,’ Barber, who has served in the Army reserve for nine years, told ABC 13.
‘I don’t know why she doesn’t want to let go of my home. I have even tried to do agreements with her.’
During a Monday court hearing in Houston, a judge ordered Timmons to repay the backdated rent. A further hearing is set for September 18 where Timmons, who also has a theft conviction from 2003, may be slapped with an eviction notice.
‘It started going downhill,’ Barber told ABC 13 of when the rent went unpaid.
‘I tried to make a payment plan for her. Then, she started threatening me to file bankruptcy and making sure I go through this process.’
Documents show Timmons filed for bankruptcy twice after moving into the property and twice beforehand.
Neighbors said she drives luxury cars and even washed them on the property’s driveway.
Surveillance footage obtained by ABC appears to show Timmons washing the hubcaps of a white Mercedes SUV.
‘But I’m excited for [Monday’s hearing], and she’ll be out soon,’ she added.
‘It has taken a toll because I love my home,’ she told the outlet, adding ‘I’m not going to let this deter me.’
Barber, who came home for the hearing, is set to return to active duty in Florida over the next few days.
Could it be that these luxury cars driven by squatter Natasha Timmons are rented or borrowed? Because I don’t get why someone would drive expensive cars and then be a squatter.
