  • Absolutely! There is no justification whatsoever, for a squatter to be able to take possession of someone's house just because they live there for a decade or so. That property, is still the property of somebody else. I was taught not to steal as a child, and yet this doctrine allows someone to claim a house, that is not theirs, free, simply for being there illegally. A squatter should NEVER be allowed to claim ownership of someone else's property...
