What to do in this "holdover" scenario? - Posted by Realmaven

Here’s the short story…

In New York, I bought a foreclosure high-ranch house at sheriff’s sale. The day after closing (30+ days after the sale), I cleared out half the contents of the house and “liquidated” it. The house was not lived in - Just a warehouse of articles/furniture etc…

Does the “holdover” ex-owner have a case against me for “burglarizing” the house? He says he lives there (HA!).

Opinions on this and what I can do? Was I wrong to prepare MY house for habitation?

The hearing is next week. Naturally, I will have representation.
