Shelter back alleged 'fraudster' squatter with legal representation

Reply to the comment left by JJ at 13/01/2020 - 11:19That to me was also the most striking quote from Shelter, bearing in mind that squatting in residential premises is now illegal.

A statement that Shelter's appeal will pay the salaries of solicitors to search for niggling little oversights on the part of landlords to prevent or delay eviction of defaulting tenants whose anti-social behaviour makes neighbours' lives a misery doesn't have quite the same heartstring-tugging ring to it...
