Bug Out Bag. A bag of things to help you get out of a touh situation you have unexpectedly found yourself in. They commonly contain a firearm, reloads, little bit of food and water, and a first aid kit. In cold weather a blanket and hand warmers are a good idea.

I don't give a damn about squatters rights. If someone moves into my house while I'm away or onto my property I will remove them with whatever force is necessary. Everyone in this country is pussified these days, if something like this happened to our great grandfathers it wouldn't even make it to court they simply would have pulled out a pistol and shot the motherfucker in the face.

The morons going into houses and screaming "adverse possession!" seem to have forgotten about two things: (1) the seven-year minimum period before they can try to claim title, and (2) Texas' "shoot anyone trespassing inside the house" law.

Any indication that these are gypsies or "Irish travelers"? If there are a whole bunch of these going on, maybe it's the latest scam one of those groups of assholes is trying.

If I had a neighgbor away for chemo and this happened I would get several of the other neighbors together....I am sure a little chat with the squatter would resolve the issue.

Hell, if any of them owned a backhoe and a secluded plot of land, I don't even think it'd be necessary to bother local law enforcement.

This. My name is on the deed. Good luck proving you 'own' my home. Adverse possession does not apply here, and if you read the law, doesn't even remotely come close.

I just did some brief reading, and it seems three years is the minimum time, but a whole lot of other conditions must be met. Simply moving into someones home while they are away isn't even close to counting.

I wonder how many times this has happened, and the squatter has just disappeared?

Three?! The article said 7. Holy crap, three years is fucked up.

Looks like the article is wrong –– unless this attorney's website is out of date. But the 3yr/5yr shorter-duration statutes have additional requirements (like actually having a deed or title document) compared to the 10yr ordinary adverse-possession statute.

These squatter/scammers need to be shot dead on general principal as burglars. Just to send a message. C'mon, Texas, you are letting us down here.

If you are ever see a lone horse or mule in a field and it never leaves there is a reason for that. Here in Fl (and most states) adverse possession requires "exclusive use" if my livestock lives on my land where I raise it, you cannot have exclusive use. You would be surprised of the amount of livestock owned by big companies not involved with farming but do have undeveloped land for one reason or another.
