A COMPANY specialising in seizing homes back from squatters has handed three Mallorcan homes back to their owners in just six months.
The company Desokupa – which claims to have a 93% success rate nationwide – insists it has not broken any laws in getting the properties back.
The firm – known as the ‘the terror of the squatters’ – comprises a team of boxers, wrestlers, and rugby players, alongside lawyers.
Each case is dealt with differently with the group finding the best way to remove unwanted intruders from client’s homes.
“There is a lot of demand from German and English owners, who find their second residences squatted in,” explained boss Daniel Esteve, who is a former professional boxer.
“We fight against the mafia of squatting and we have 1000 employees,” he explained.
The company’s first successes came in Mallorca last october with two apartments liberated.
Then earlier this year they returned a villa to an English couple.
A 252-room hotel was the company’s most recent success in Lloret de Mar.
