A man from Long Island decided to initiate legal action against a company upon discovering that a house was being constructed on his land without his prior knowledge.
Long Island Man Decided to Initiate Legal Action Against a Housing-Development Company
Dr. Daniel Kenigsberg purchased a half-acre stretch at 51 Sky Top Terrace in Connecticut in 1991. This location is situated just outside of New Haven and holds sentimental value as it’s near the place where his childhood home once stood. His father had acquired that property in 1953 for $5,000.
Kenigberg decided to initiate legal action against a housing-development company because they constructed a house on a piece of land that he claims was sold without his permission. The development company also mentioned that they fell victim to a scam.
More About the Unauthorized House Construction
Upon receiving a tip from a friend about the ongoing construction of a house on the property, he decided to check the situation himself while he was in town from Long Island to confirm the details. Upon his arrival, he discovered that significant construction was in progress on a substantial house.
According to CTI insider, the lawsuit, which was filed in July in federal court, is trying to get the 2022 sale canceled and is asking for damages and compensation that could add up to $2 million.
Furthermore, he is making a request for the implicated company to remove ‘any structures and/or materials from the Property and restore the Property to its condition prior to the Defendants’ encroachment‘. As indicated by a listing, the four-bedroom, 4,000-square-foot house, originally assessed at $1.45 million, had received an offer after being listed in March. According to Kenigsberg, he planned to maintain the land out of sentimental considerations and eventually pass it on to the following generation.
