After missing mortgage payments for more than 23 years, a New York man is set to be evicted from his home after a new ruling from a judge.
A judge ruled that Long Island resident Guramrit Hanspal does not qualify for COVID-19 eviction protections because he has been illegally squatting in the Nassau County home and is not a renter, according to the Daily Mail.
The real estate firm that owns the property has been trying to evict the 52-year-old.
The firm's attorney said the firm intends to "immediately" enforce the court's order, Daily Mail reported.
Hanspal has been living in the three-bedroom East Meadow home since 1998. The news outlet reported that Hanspal filed bankruptcy multiple times and filed lawsuits to avoid foreclosure over the years.
