Q: Someone is making claim to a garage unit I own using a quitclaim deed given to him by the HOA. How can I legally remove?

Another unit owner in the complex currently has his belongings in my detached garage and is claiming ownership because he has a quitclaim deed given to him by the HOA. It shows on my grant deed and title that I am the sole owner and should have exclusive access to the garage unit. How am I Legally able to remove his items?

A: You may want to consult with a real estate attorney in your area to discuss your legal options for removing the other unit owner's belongings. It may be possible to file a lawsuit to have the quitclaim deed declared invalid if it was not legally obtained, or to seek an injunction to prevent the other unit owner from interfering with your use of the garage unit. A real estate attorney can advise you on the best course of action based on the specific circumstances of your case.
