If you want to own a home, go to Florida and squat in one for 7 years1/25/2013
If Andre Barbosa is expecting a casserole or a batch of cookies from his new neighbors, he's going to be waiting a long while. The 23-year-old Brazilian man has been squatting in a fab $2.5 million mansion in Boca Raton, Fla., since July. Angry neighbors called the cops on Dec. 26, but police could do nothing. No one saw Barbosa break in, and he had paperwork claiming ownership under a quirky state law called "adverse possession," which allows a person to move into a home and claim the title if they stay there for seven years. Bank of America says it's following the legal process regarding Barbosa, but one neighbor has already offered to buy the house to get rid of him. [Source]
