Squatters move in. I wonder if the castle law would apply here???

I think I would lob some CS gas through the window, wait for the squatters to "evict" themselves, then go in and reclaim my home. Armed.

Castle law applies to the legal resident and since the owners friend let the squatter in , the real owner has very little rights. Owner admits letting his friend oversee property and friend admits a verbal conversation with squatter. Happens most than you think.
My mother-in-law has been in real estate for 60 years and my wife has had her brokers license for 40 years. We see people who leave water and power connected, leave for whatever reason while having a friend look after the property, and pass away. In their absence the friend is maintaining the bills and taxes and in a lot of cases is also renting it out. Couple years later a family member comes forth thinking they take it only to find a court battle. Friends seem to take advantage when opportunity knocks. Never leave a property unattended without written representation from a legal representative. I do a lot of renovation for my wife and while a verbal agreement with a contractor is established they never gain entry without paperwork. Contractors must be bonded and insured for damage and employees. Without paperwork a contractor can file a mechanics lean and that can be as bad as a squatter.

Wow I feel so stupid, I worked saved my money took out a loan and bought my house. Plus I make payments every month. I didn't know I could find an empty house just move in and call it mine. After all this is the land of the free.

And if you are a criminal, crime does pay for a season.
