SQUAT HOUSE & CAMP CLEANUP

Squatting refers to the act of occupying an empty building or a vacant piece of land that the squatter does not have legal permission to use. Squatting can even occur in homes and buildings that are only temporarily empty. Though squat houses and encampments can be set up for a number of reasons, such as a desire to simply have a place to live, they are often associated with a high incidence of drug use in the area, filth and the destruction of the property. Over the last few years, squatting has been in the news all over the world as tent cities and other smaller encampments have been set up by groups of homeless people.

WHAT KIND OF DAMAGE IS CAUSED BY SQUATTING?

While the original reason for these encampments may be understandable, they can, unfortunately, result in a high incidence of in-camp drug use, crime, filth and the destruction of the property. When squatters and camp tenants vacate, they can leave behind their garbage, as well as high-risk substances, used needles and other drug paraphernalia and even human waste. Aside from being unsightly, this refuse can attract rodents and spread bacteria, as well as posing a significant health and safety hazard to people and animals living in the area.

Another unfortunate side effect of squatting and tent cities is that they can result in damage to the property itself. Inside, this means structural damage. On outside properties, this can mean a combination of structural and environmental damage, resulting in remediation that can take anywhere from months to years to address.
