NYC millionaire couple are left horrified after buying their dream $2M mansion ... trends now

A New York City couple bought their dream house for $2 million to retire alongside their disabled son only to find a 'nightmare' squatter who is refusing to leave.

Susana and Joseph Landa, both 68, purchased the perfect mansion in Douglaston, Queens, where they planned to enjoy retirement and care for their son Alex, who has Down Syndrome.

The multi-million dollar property is located next door to family members and in a neighborhood where the Landa family have spent their entire lives.

'I just want to know that I can die tomorrow and he's next to his brother,' Susana said of her disabled son. 

Susana and Joseph's dreams were crushed when, after buying the home in October, they discovered the house had been claimed by a squatter, identified as Brett Flores.

'It has become a nightmare, a total nightmare,' said Joseph Landa told ABC7.

Four months after making the big purchase, the Landa family are still unable to actually move into their dream home as they continue to face obstacles in trying to kick the intruder out. 

'I wake up and I go to sleep thinking about the same thing, when is this guy going to come out?' Susana, a mother-of-three, said. 

Flores is claiming that he has every right to be on the property after being hired as a 'caretaker' for the previous owner. 

Flores described in his own words in court documents why he 'deserved' to be living at the property.  

 'We couldn't believe it, we could not believe it,' Susana said.

Court documents show that Flores, 32, was indeed hired by the former homeowner, who was an elderly man.

The man passed away in January of 2023, but Flores has claimed that he has a 'license' to stay in the house
