DeSantis fighting squatter problem.

Updated: Apr 14

Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida recently signed into law House Bill 621, aimed at tackling the issue of squatting. This legislation allows property owners to request immediate removal of squatters by law enforcement under specific conditions, such as unlawful entry and refusal to leave after being ordered. The new law also introduces severe penalties for squatting-related offenses, ranging from misdemeanors for false claims to first-degree felonies for causing significant damage while trespassing. This move positions Florida as a leader in protecting homeowners against unlawful occupation​ (FLGov)​.
