A new law comes into force tomorrow making squatting in residential properties a criminal act. I for one welcome this law. It is about time property owners were protected against someone taking over their property. I know there are those who will argue that if people are homeless they have to go somewhere but, in my experience, the usual squatters are people who want something for nothing, moving from one squat to another and when, after great expense the owner gets his property back, he finds it has been trashed.
I would be interested in what others think about this, is there anyone who actually supports squatters?
