How Do You Become a Squatter?

Answer

In England and Wales squatting is not a crime. There are thousands of empty properties, some of which are more obvious than others. Normally you will have to keep an eye on a place to make sure it is empty. It is best to do some research on a place thoroughly before you squat it by finding out who the owner is and what (if anything) is going on. If you don't have time for this, look and ask around, or check for lists and notice boards at ASS and other places.

You become a squatter if you illegally occupy an abandoned house or empty piece of land. Illegal occupation means that you do not have the permission to occupy that space, nor do you rent or own that premises. Some laws say that a squatter can own that premises if he or she has stayed in that house for more than ten years without interruptions from the owner.
