Mansion Squatter in Boca Raton

Andre Barbosa saw a mansion that he liked in Boca Raton, Florida, so he broke in and then tried to seize possession of the $2.5 million property, using a law called “Adverse Possession” that allows squatters to claim ownership of a property if they live there long enough.

This simple trick of breaking and grabbing someone else’s property worked for a while, but Boca Raton police finally removed him.

There is a serious problem all over the country with people simply breaking into homes and trying to squat there, knowing that there is a good chance that the property owner will end up having to go to court to evict them, just as if they were legal tenants. This is a seriously flawed loophole in the law which needs to be corrected to protect property owners.
