Squatters are suing two homeowners after unlawfully moving into the couple’s home.

The couple had spent $530,000 renovating the Lakeside Avenue investment property, a Queens duplex worth $930,000. By the time the couple, identified as Juliya Fulman and Denis Kurlyand, secured tenants for both rental units, the squatters had moved in.

The real estate broker, Ejona Bardhi, discovered on March 5 that the squatters, identified as Lance Hunt Sr. and Rondie L. Francis, had moved into the home and changed the locks.

Bardhi then called the police, who showed up and kicked both men off the properties after they failed to provide proof backing their claims that they had been staying in the home since January. The squatters, however, returned to the house the next day with what they claimed was a lease agreement signed by Bardhi.

Juliya and Kurlyand, however, disproved those claims with ownership documents and timestamped video evidence showing the home had been vacant. The couple was then allowed to change the locks with the squatters booted out of the property again.

Things soon took a dramatic turn after the squatters sued Bardhi along with the couple and the real estate company 10 days later.

“It’s absolutely absurd,” Juliya told the New York Post on Sunday. “These people literally broke into my house. It’s not fair to us as homeowners that we are not protected by the city.

The squatters were granted an emergency emergency lockout hearing on March 22 in Queens Civil Court. According to Kurlyand, Hunt Sr. and Francis showed up to the court hearing with forged documents made from public records.

“They found whatever they could and threw it all together. The lease they presented is ridiculous — signed on Jan. 1 and starting Jan. 1,” Kurlyand said.

Juliya said she couldn’t believe the men’s audacity to show up in court.

The homeowner’s lawyer, Rizpah Morrow, has asked Judge Vijay Kitson for a trial, arguing the squatters had “perpetrated a fraud.”

“As in any courtroom, you never know which way it’s gonna go. It’s scary — if the judge decides for whatever reason to rule against us that day, even if we have evidence, there’s nothing we can do at the end of the day — we still have to fight in court,” Kurlyand said. “Somebody broke into my house, and I’m in court getting sued by them. How can we be here? How is this possible? There have to be safety precautions in place.

The couple has spent over $4,000 on legal fees since the squatters filed the lawsuit against them.
