Invasion of the condo squatters

Living with Rules: Community associations confront squatters - South Florida "Has a squatter moved into your community?

That's the case for The Circle Villa Condominium Association in Lauderhill. 'We have at least several unit-owner squatters and one renter squatter,' said Dorine Neal, president of the 96-unit condo association. 'The numbers are growing in this economy.'

As if cash-strapped community associations faced with foreclosures, delinquencies and non-paying owners didn't have enough to deal with, increasingly some are stuck with squatters."

Foreclosed and abandoned units are being put to use, it seems.
