Nowadays, it isn’t uncommon to read or hear about a squatter taking ownership of a residence or occupied commercial retail space. The laws that protect squatters vary from state to state, but the law seems to be written for the squatter and not the real property owner. Think I’m kidding? Take a look at the definition of “Squatters Rights".
Just a couple of years ago, The Oregonian profiled a Portland homeowner who was locked in a legal battle with a squatter who overtook the owner's vacant property.
