There goes adverse possession

House Bill 903 was signed into law by Gov. Rick Scott on June 28 and went into effect on July 1.
The state law prevents "acquiring title to real property by possession," according to the summary. The occupant would have to pay all taxes for seven years, file a return of the land for taxes, protect the property with an enclosure or cultivate it, and maintain and occupy the land.

The speedy legal action was taken to prevent 'adverse squatters' taking houses, but has been discussed for PRPC issues.

    Perhaps we should let the Lawyers work the legal issues.
