Default Private Property doesn`t mean $hit anymore

WTF !!! Sorry for the rant, but I was hot last night, my wife had to tell me to go back to the cart.
Here`s the scenerio, these folks rented a house in the village several weeks ago (this is a privated gate community, which gives homeowners an option to rent their house), so I guess they thought they were still untitled to come in the village at their leisure. These folks came in last night so their son could propose to his girlfriend. Well they went up on a private homeowners deck after they have been told 2 weeks ago it was PRIVATE PROPERTY. The homeowner is in town so they knock on their door and said we approved them to go up on their deck for this. Flat out lied to the homeowner. Only way we found out about this was we were at the beach on the village Gazebo and the family pulls up. we asked what they were doing here and thats when we found out. Man was I pissed. We went over to the homeowners house and had a chat to explain that we never gave permission for them to do this. After all its your property. These people had the gall to set this up and trespass on private property after they have been told not to and then lie to the homeowner on top of that. I about marched up the deck and rained on their parade. Better yet I was going to call the law and have them cited for trespassing. My wife had to calm me down. I never got to make the call. After these folks came off the deck we told them and the family how pissed we were and needed to leave.
WTF is up with people these days? They have no respect anymore.

Maybe I did not read something right but what were they hurting, granted I would have asked permission first had it been me but I would not get that upset over something like that and maybe after the fact inform them that next time they need to ask prior to doing this

Guy was just wanting to impress his GF and give her a proposal should would remember

Sounds like lose, lose.

They lose because they fudged it and never asked permission.

You lose because this thing will bother you for a week or two and they happily moved on with life.

Its the fact that this is a private gated community. The folks who are allowed come in here to rent are guests and should respect the homeowners private property. They do not get the rights of ownership in the village to do as they please. There are rules the renters get prior to there arrival and even when they show up they are given the rules again. Once you have left the village after your stay you have no right to come back in on your own without permission from the office and especially come in and trespass. Wether they were hurting anything or not they were in the wrong by far. Should have called the law.

My Jersey home has an incredible sunset view (on the bay) and on more than one occasion I have seen people on my dock taking pictures while we were home no less. I used to flip out, now I just give them their moment and leave'em be, take their pictures and leave.

During the 'boom years' down in Florida I rented a little cottage on the river in a little complex 3 units and owners home at the end of a 800' driveway, with a privacy fence to go through. Very private, no signage for the cottages, like a single home setup. People would ignore 6 no tresspassing signs in the 800' BEFORE the entrance.. No less than 5 or 6 times a day people would cruise through. Best was this old fart on a scooter! He comes cruising in checking out everything but when he gets to the end he is greeted by the owners two boxers and my golden retriever. They have always loved chasing us on our Harleys, didn't know those scooters went that fast ROFLMAO

Sounds like your beef should be with the gate house for letting them in.

I see it more as a liability problem then anything else. I would have asked them to leave also. If I don't know you and you are on my property with out my permission then you better find the quickest route off the property. If everyone wasn't so quick to sue these days it may be different.

Well from what I read here there are worse things that could happen....anyway....Must be a great view or something !!!- Aren't there public access spots for the water views? Anyway - send a picture. The more I read about the crime and the a$$holes everywhere the gladder I am that I live here. In fact, I am gonna take my location out of my profile.....Although let me tell you there are cities in Western and Central CT that can match anywhere for crime and just plain low lifes.

It's a growing epidemic in the USA. It's called "I'm-more-important-itis"

How did these people get through the gate? How could you grant them premission to use somebody else's property? Why wouldn't the kid have proposed several weeks earlier when they were renting a place there? There is a lot that seems strange about this stroy. I think your beef should be with the gate and the gaurd if it's manned. I wouldn't get so worked up about a situation involving a strange proposal and somebody else's propperty. They made a poor decission on the location. You ruined the proposal/celebration. I guess you are even.

If the homeowner let complete stranger's use his house because he was told you said it was OK and you didn't need to run it by him, the door is open buddy. I would go staight over there and tell him his buddy John said you could go into his fridge and help yourself to all the beer. Would you let somebody come to your house unannounced because one of your buddies told them it was OK? Would you believe that your buddy would just send somebody to your house without asking? My guess is no on both accounts.

that disease is most prevalent in the human sub-species known as the ME-anderthal.

before our recent move, we lived in a waterfront house on a very popular gunkhole. we had a small sliver of sandy beach in front of our bulkhead, as did one other house on the opposite side of the creek. every weekend, we would have these meanderthals beach their dingies, climb the bulkhead and bring their dogs INTO our yard to piss and crap! i always approached them politely and usually said something like, "excuse me, but this is private property, so please take your dinghy and your dog somewhere else." Nine out 10 times, they would get all indignant and ask me where they were supposed to take their dog?!?! like that's my problem? WTF?!?!

the house on the opposite side of the creek was a seasonal cottage and was vandalized a few times after these a$$holes realized there were no full-time residents.

generally speaking, people are self-centered and could give a rat's a$$ about someone else's property.

The title of this thread is misleading.... I hate to break it everyone but when the first private property sign went up about a 5000 years ago someplace in rome or greece - the first "trespasser" followed soon after.... this is nothing new...people have always known better, and not cared since the dawn of time... our culture tends to lend itself a bit more to rule bending and breaking than say Germans, or some asians but it happens everywhere, always has always will. You have access to what they want.... they take it. simple.
