2013 House Bill 5069: Authorize penalties on rental property “squatters” (Senate Roll Call 429)
facebook  twitter 

Passed 32 to 5 in the Senate on June 11, 2014, to establish that the usual restrictions and penalties on a landlord interfering with a tenant’s legitimate possession of a rented residence do not apply in the case of “squatters,” defined by the bill as a person who took possession by “forcible entry, holds possession by force after a peaceable entry, or came into possession by trespass.” House Bill 5070 authorizes criminal penalties for some squatting violations.
