One handyman has received a huge amount of support after successfully kicking out squatters who had taken up residence in his mom's house.
Taking the time to think strategically about removing the unwanted guests from the property, the man carefully staked out the home before taking action.
He has since been met with an avalanche of praise for his strategic thinking.
Playing the long game, the handyman devised a plan to kick the squatters out once and for all.
Rocking up to the house, Flash noticed that the back door had been broken into and took no time in writing up a lease as well as getting his mom to make him the legal tenant of the property.
After that Flash finally put his plan in action, waiting outside of the home for the dwellers to leave before he got to work.
He went into his mom's home and installed a whole bunch of security cameras to capture footage of the squatters living inside the residence.
When two of the squatters finally returned to the house, Flash told them to move all of their furniture and belongings out or else he would take it out himself.
He said that one of the women illegally staying at the home 'tried to say that it wasn't her' and that 'they weren't in the house'.
According to Flash, she also claimed that the furniture she had delivered to the address was done so 'accidentally'.
Speaking on Jesse Watters Primetime, he said: "[I] got it notarized. I had current utility bills with me in my name. I had keys to the house."
"If the squatter can take a home, I can take a home," he continued.
Flash went on to explain: "If I enter the house, they can't kick me out just as much. But with having a lease and keys and utility bills at that point, you know, if they call the police, the police would tell them the same thing.
"If I call the police, I can say, 'Hey, I have an intruder in my house, and they broke in the back door.'"
After alerting the squatters to the situation, they finally decided to 'take the safe way out, the easy way out and move all their stuff out'.
One social media user commented: "This is awesome, beat them at their own game. Well done."
"Yes, one for the good guys!" wrote a second, "congratulations on getting your mom's home back."
"I love this" posted a third, while a fourth added: "This is great!!!"
Others even went as far as to offer some advice to any other concerned home-owners out there.
They wrote: "Putting an alarm system on an empty home is a great way to avoid this.
"Anyone not legally residing there tries to enter and the alarm notifies the police. Keeps anyone from setting up residency.
"Far less expensive than evictions."
"I appreciate all the love and support that I'm getting," Flash concluded, "but I just hope that the outdated squatter laws get some attention too so that maybe I can help change them."
