SQUATTERS: a squatter is someone who is in the rental property or asserting a control over it, but did not have an agreement with the owner or other tenant of the property to do so.  Typically, this is someone who either breaks into the property or simply sees a property that is vacant and walks in and assumes it as their own. Sometimes, they will get the power company to open an account for them, and they will have full utilities in their name.  And sometimes, they will cut into another properties’ power source and steal it. 


SQUATTERS can be moved from the property.

An unlawful detainer action can be brought against them.




CAN I CALL THE POLICE AND TELL THEM THERE IS A TRESPASSER IN MY NEWLY ACQUIRED PROPERTY AND TO PLEASE REMOVE THEM? 

You can try, but you will most likely get the response:

I AM SORRY, BUT THIS IS A CIVIL MATTER AND YOU WILL HAVE TO GO TO CIVIL COURT

TO REMOVE THE PERSON.”


Whether this is what people term “squatter’s rights” or not, the point is self-help evictions are not allowed. To remove someone from a property, other than a burglar in the act of committing the crime, the legal way to remove someone is by eviction.
