Legally this was the right move but with all the vacant housing and substandard housing why can't we let the homeless live there? With a rental agreement and a small rent fee one can avoid the issue of squatting. It's just sad.

@PG_Kelly you need consent of the owner. And there is nothing stopping property owners from renting out a property for like $5 a month.

@ned @PG_Kelly Two things: (1) There are tax consequences for renting sub-market. Be careful. (2) One single case of meth lab operation in your house, and you're going to find it would have been cheaper to tear it down and walk away.

Happy thoughts, sorry. I've brushed up against these issues in past lives.
