What is the name of your state? Pennsylvania
What are squatter's rights? I work for a social service agency. The local police told me that if a person allows another person to spend even one night in his/her home that that person is now a legal resident (even if that name is not on the lease) if that guest has nowhere else to go.
For example: A client of our center let a homeless person stay with him out of kindness. This guest became physically abusive. The police said that the guest was technically a legal resident of his apartment because he had nowhere else to go and he had stayed with him for two weeks. He stated that the guest had a right to residency under squatter's rights.
This seems outrageous? Is it true?
