The Council's 'Squatters' Handbook'

Recommended Posts

Town halls are referring would-be squatters to a far-Left group selling a ?2 DIY guide on how to break into and occupy empty homes.


The squatters' handbook advises them to force entry through back entrances or open windows, carry a crowbar and claim they are 'clearing the drains' if stopped.


The guide, from the Advisory Service for Squatters, describes how to take apart locks and fit new ones.


It also recommends putting a legal warning on the door stating it is a criminal offence to try to remove squatters by force.


Homeowners who threaten to do so should be intimidated by being told: 'You may receive a sentence of up to six months' imprisonment and/or a fine of up to ?5,000'.
