If the building is left empty and is not in use as an actual home, and there is no forced entry into the property, then it`s fair game as far as squatters are concerned.

I rented a house for a year in Buckinghamshire (a HUGE detached house with a football pitched sized garden) as the owners were waiting for a deal to go through with a property developer and they`d moved out, only to find someone had tried to force entry into the house. So, rather than leaving it empty they decided to lease it out. It had been empty for months. We got it for a VERY reasonable monthly rent, considering it`s size.

In England, they`re sometimes not even required to leave even when they ARE asked by the owner, as long as they broke no laws entering the premises and always keep one squatter on the property. Or something like that. The rules are very complicated.

Part of me says GET A JOB.

But the more reasonable part says, why the hell are we building on green belt land to provide `affordable housing` when there are places like this empty cause no-one can afford to buy it?

That is an obviously a flawed analogy, since:

I am using my home while you are robbing it, ie, it`s not abandoned.

and

You are taking away property or value from me, which is not the case in the video.

So squat away.

From my understanding of the laws of squatting (which admittedly are derived from, but not necessarily the same as English), if the owner is not maintaining a building then the squatters aren`t required to leave until they`re asked by the owner.

Just because the words "we" and "live" are in the title, you think it`s a play on a Beatles title? That`s stretching it a bit.

Property rights, laws, rights in general... they are all constructs of our imagination fueled by luxury and fear. When it becomes scarier to obey the law and harder to conform to society than it is to simply take what you need to survive, humankind can, will, and does throw their concepts of rights and laws out the window. Be it scavenging "spoiled" food from a grocery dumpster, to squatting in an abandoned space, to burglarizing the rich and giving to the poor, to beheading those you label as your oppressors in the town square; all glimpses of the chaos and savagery just below the the thin facade of law and morals that we wear to masquerade as `human`.

It just now occured to me that the title is a play on: We all live in a Yellow Submarine!

Well done!

Sorry @Arcval, just because you own your ANUS doesn`t mean YOU get to say how it`s used. Grab your ankles boy!
(Sorry @Gerry1, I called it first!)

Back to being serious: (well, as close as I get anyhow) @LazyMe: I got a VW Van rotting in my back yard. It`s MY van and I`ll do with it as I please! If YOU want to drive it around you gotta PAY ME for it, or it`s grand theft auto, eh?

So if the idiotic laws of England make leaving this house vacent easier than other choices, that`s NO REASON for illegal squaters to move in.

That is horrible logic man.

So if I rob your home and you did not see me and tell me not to, I should imply consent by your inaction?

I would like to see that defence hold up in court!

Let`s make the assumption that whoever the owner is, implied consent by inaction.

Problem f*cking solved.

Can it be that no one owns the building? Then squat away. You might as well, since it`s basically free for the taking.

If someone owns it and this happens, they obviously don`t care enough to defend and maintain their property. Serves them right.

If it`s the bank that owns it, banks don`t care, this is what they get.

It all works out IMO. It`s not exactly a great lifestyle living with 10 other bums. Better to live in a flat that you own by yourself or with someone than to squat in a house with bums regardless of what it`s worth.

@Loxen, thatjimguy and others:
Just because someone owns something does not give them unlimited right to how it is used. This is has been made very clear with cars, guns, drugs, knifes, etc. But not explicitly with everything. If nothing of use is being done with a building for a prolong period of time it is a misuse of that asset and wasteful. The owner should have rented it out. But as they don`t seem to posses any sense and only sane adults are allowed to own buildings, then it should be up for grabs by anyone who will actually use it.

@Photoking:
They din`t wreck the house, that`s what 10 years of abandonment does to a building. It`ll probably cost more to do the place up than what it`s currently worth.

IMHO - This one line disqualifies everything else she says.

"I got involved in the "squat scene".

As if this is the "hip" thing to do. lmao

As other already stated: Why shouldn`t it be used? Because its not yours.
End story. No "but but but`s". It does not belong to you, stop it.
Now, I`ll agree its really silly when property owners would rather see a building fall apart, then sell it cheap or at a loss, or at the very-very least rent it out. That one is a head scratcher.

Who cares who owns it? If they let such a large house get into such a state, especially when the nations short on housing, then they don`t deserve it. If your going to leave a house for ages rent it out for drats sake.

The windows were all dirty, the floors were gross. the house was still in a total state of disrepair. Just because you clean the floor of the bathroom, so you are able to use it, doesnt make it more valuable.

also, just because it is emtpy and "no one" is paying for it, doesnt make it ok for someone else to stay there. Someone is paying for it.

"I dont see why it`s a problem"
Because its not yours - you are not paying for it and you most certainly are not bringing up the value. Just cause you clean a floor or two does not raise the value.

Be very careful McGovern, something tells me that she`s squatted on a quite few things already and they may not have been properly cleaned beforehand if you know what I mean.

I`m just sayin`

Cute girl. If they`re tidying up the place, why kick them out? Seems like a win-win to me.
