r/squatting is a space for the squatters of the world. We advocate for squatter’s rights and believe everyone has a right to a roof over their head. Whether it's occupying vacant land or vacant property for personal, communal or political reasons, this is the place to talk about it.

Squatting is the act of occupying an abandoned or unoccupied space or building that the squatter does not own, rent or otherwise have permission to use.

best way to go about this?

my next door neighbor passed away a few months ago. obviously his house is abandoned, and he has no living family, or friends. he was really mentally unwell and just physically unhealthy too. apparently the inside is a dump according to my parents who did some electrical work back in the day for him, so i can only assume its gotten worse over time. my family has been doing upkeep on the outside of the property, mowing the grass, weed whacking, power washing and gutter cleaning. just to keep the local HOA and banks at bay.

my brother and i have had a plan to break in and clean out the garage and start squatting in there. given the economy, living in New York, and the fact that nobody technically owns the place it seems like the best move.

what exactly would be the best course of action? just break in clean it out and set up some beds and belongings and just live in there. make it kinda obvious so it ain’t trespassing but not to obvious that it alerts law enforcement before the 30 days?

my uncle suggested paying for electricity bills for the house, but i dont wanna spend a ton of money that i cant get back if i dont end up in control of the property.

some advice would be appreciated!

I believe I am entitled to squatter’s rights (NYC)

Current owner is telling me to leave but legally I should be allowed to stay according to what I’ve researched. I live in Manhattan. Any resources or websites I can check out to apply?

Abandoned land (5 acres) Iowa

Iowa, United States there is some land that there was a house on in 2015 that burned down. Chinese nationals own it and no one can contact them. They do still pay property tax online every year. The courthouse doesn’t have any info on their address or contact info. Just that someone pays once a year via credit card.

So can I just take over the land ? Maybe plant some trees or cut down some trees? What’s the worst that can happen ?

My biggest concern is getting a trespassing violation. Can only the owner of the property do the trespassing ?

Squatting to adverse possession in Portland

Hello there's this house near me that hasn't been lived in since 89. All boarded up and owned by a "Portland Community Reinvestment initiative" a program designed to and I quote "provide stability, self sufficiency, and wealth creation". The property needs a lot of work but do you think I could do a rent to own type situation through such an organization? And if they deny my offer. If I squat in it for the 10+ years can I even adverse possession from an inc. entity like that?

Our landlord is selling the house we rent. How would they have to legally get me to move?

We have no lease. No security deposit. The realtor has already been trying to set up a day to take pictures. The owner has not contacted us. We are in Indiana.

Oakland CA

Ive Been living in a shipping container that has been unused for a few years, my problem is that it's behind a radiology place and I have to go thru the parking lot to access it so staying undetected has been pretty difficult. I'm pretty sure I've been spotted the people who work there. The past few days people have been showing up to check on the property, I think someone ratted on us & they're probably going to kick us out of here soon. What I'd really like to do is find an abandoned house to move into before that happens, so I don't have to sleep outside. Can anybody give me some advice on finding a building to squat in? I dont really care about becoming the legal owner, altho that would be cool. I really just need a place to live, preferably somewhere I can stay a wile and get comfortable in(& not have to worry about going back to jail 🫰🫰) any help would be much appreciated.
