Upon returning home, man discovers $1.5 million house erected on his purchased land

Dr. Daniel Kenigsberg, the owner of a half-acre property at 51 Sky Top Terrace in Connecticut since 1991, has found himself ensnared in an unexpected and distressing situation. This idyllic location, situated just beyond New Haven and reminiscent of his father’s purchase in 1953 for a mere $5,000, turned into a nightmarish ordeal.

The tranquility of his ownership was disrupted when a close friend informed him that construction work was underway on his property – a property he distinctly recalled never selling. His shock was palpable as he learned of this encroachment.

During a vacation on Long Island, Dr. Kenigsberg decided to investigate the matter firsthand and was stunned by what he encountered: an imposing home under construction on his land.

In October 2022, the property was purportedly sold to 51 Sky Top Partners LLC for $350,000, as indicated by public records. Dr. Kenigsberg, however, asserts that he had no involvement in this transaction and was completely unaware of its occurrence.

Responding to this injustice, Dr. Kenigsberg has filed a lawsuit comprising nine charges, including trespass, statutory theft, and unfair business practices. His legal action seeks to annul the property deal and secure $2 million in damages. He also demands the removal of any structures or materials placed on the property by the corporation.

A listing reveals that the property, valued at $1.45 million, encompasses four bedrooms within its 4,000-square-foot expanse. A peculiar and unsettling turn of events led to this situation, prompting Dr. Kenigsberg’s vehement reaction.

According to the complaint, a certain ‘Daniel Kenigsberg’ from Johannesburg, South Africa, allegedly forged a power of attorney to unlawfully appropriate the real property. Anthony Monelli of Trumbull, Connecticut, is purported to have granted this power.

Gina Leto and Greg Bugaj of 51 Sky Top Partners have now come forward, acknowledging that they, too, fell victim to fraud. Their statement conveys astonishment and disbelief upon realizing that Kenigsberg had not actually sold them the property. The scam involved a third party impersonating Dr. Kenigsberg, orchestrating the property’s listing, marketing, and sale – all transpiring under the radar due to the negligence of various real estate professionals involved in the transaction.
