What are squatters rights in the UK?
This is sometimes known as 'adverse possession'. Squatting in residential buildings (like a house or flat) is illegal. It can lead to 6 months in prison, a £5,000 fine or both. Anyone who originally enters a property with the permission of the landlord is not a squatter.
