DeSantis eliminates squatter’s rights in Florida

by ian

Ron DeSantis is cracking down on squatting, an issue that has come to the forefront in recent weeks. The Florida governor signed a law yesterday allowing homeowners to immediately evict squatters, while also increasing criminal penalties.

It comes shortly after a New York woman was arrested for changing the locks on her home where squatters had taken over. More recently, squatters murdered a homeowner in Manhattan.

DeSantis slammed Democrat states for failing to protect the rights of homeowners, saying that Florida is “ending the squatter scam once and for all.”
