“Adverse Possession” is a vaild legal concept. If some property is truly abandoned and one takes possession and pays the taxes, there are legal provisions that could let you own that property. But when someone hasn’t abandoned the property, attempts at adverse possession are just GRAND THEFT.
So don’t be duped into trying something that could put you in jail…
As you’ll read in this article, Squatters take over homes, causing different housing crisis, areas with lots of foreclosures are vulnerable to this now.
And if you have rental property or a house for sale that you don’t live in … watch out. You could be next for some idiot like this to try to seize your property and claim “adverse possession”.
