Can someone please tell me more about 'squatting'. I thought, no matter what, it is illegal to occupy/ move into someone else's home. Isn't it the same as breaking and entering? Why can it take months to legally remove these unwanted elements if you are the home owner? Surely since it is your property and these people break in then you have the right to remove them (with force if necessary). Can someone explain this issue? I feel I am missing something.
