No one has the right to take justice in their own hands. If an owner evicts a squatter himself, the latter may file a complaint against him for home invasion. As defined by the French Civil code (article 102), the home represents the place where the person has his main establishment. Now your secondary residence, which is not your home, has become the squatter’s home.
- Why does the procedure to expel squatters take so long?
- Is there a difference between a primary residence and a secondary residence?
- What about business premises?
- I left for a 2 month trip. On coming back, I discovered that my apartment has been squatted in. What could I do?
- The house neighbouring mine is squatted-in. There is a huge volume of nuisances. We do not know anything about the owner. What can I do?
