    check this out: UK government considers ban on squatters | Inquirer Global Nation

    in sum: "Britain’s Conservative-led administration says squatters are an anti-social scourge, and has begun moves to outlaw the practice of living in empty buildings without the owner’s permission. It’s currently a civil, rather than criminal, offense....

    Squatting is a well-established, if generally unwelcome, tradition in Britain. While the government does not keep hard numbers, it cites an estimate of 20,000 squatters nationwide. In England and Wales it is a civil rather than a criminal matter, so while squatters can be evicted by the courts, they don’t get fines or go to jail.

    Justice Minister Crispin Blunt said something needs to be done to lessen the “distress and misery” squatters cause.

    “Law-abiding property owners or occupiers who work hard for a living can spend thousands of pounds evicting squatters from their properties, repairing damage and clearing up the debris they have left behind,” he said as he asked for public input, the first step toward changing the law.
