CAR Is Sponsoring A Bill To Address Squatters In Real Property

The California Association of Realtors (“CAR”) intends to sponsor legislation to address the unlawful occupation of residential property by squatters. Unfortunately, there has been a rise in the number of properties occupied by squatters who have knowledge of California eviction laws. There are currently no laws designed to assist homeowners and law enforcement officials with removing squatters from vacant properties in a timely manner. As a result, CAR has sponsored legislation specifically addressing the unlawful entering or possession of real property, as well as making it a felony to refuse to leave property when requested to do so by an owner or an owner’s representative.
