Two years ago Tom Decker and his wife, Maria McArthur, bought an old home on a wooded lane in the Santa Cruz Mountains they thought held promise of becoming the perfect retirement getaway.

The East Bay couple knew the house, acquired for a modest $50,000, came with its share of problems, like a slipping hillside in the back and other government-required fixes. While Decker says he was prepared to tackle the repairs, the two could not have been ready for what they now say stands between them and their dream home.

A week ago, after many long weekends spent driving from their primary residence in Pleasanton to improve the new property, the couple returned to the Ben Lomond house and discovered someone else had moved into the home.

The cars in the driveway weren’t theirs, their belongings had been stacked in the garage and their keys no longer fit the locks, they said. And worse yet, upon arriving at the property on Hubbard Gulch Road, the couple says, a man emerged from the front door.

“We said, ‘This is our home,’ and he said, ‘This is my home,’ ” Decker said. “We were dumbfounded.”
