Housing Discrimination

questions & answers

Question: I have gotten a swing set from someone and a male care to my house saying it was theirs. Can they come onto my property and take it?

Answer: Generally someone may not enter your property to remove an item even if they believe it to be theirs. This would be trespassing. Someone may argue they are privileged to trespass to recover their personal property, but trespassing is not the proper way to go about it. If they can prove it, then you may have to return the swing set. But if you did not take it, I recommend calling the police if someone enters your property without your permission.
