Broward Property Appraiser Moves to Repeal Squatting Law

“Loki Boy” copy cats bedevil Broward County

The attempted takeover of a $2.5 million Boca Raton mansion using an obscure real estate law now has copycat cases — including one involving a $4.6 million oceanfront mansion complete with tennis court and pool.

Broward County Property Appraiser Lori Parrish — whose office accepted three more filings for “adverse possession” Tuesday — said she’s had enough.

She’s started asking the area’s state legislators to strike the law from the books, once and for all.

“It’s not a 21st century law — they ought to abolish it,” Parrish said, pointing out that it was passed when Florida was vast swaths of agricultural land that sometimes fell into disuse.

State Rep. Irving Slosberg, D-Boca Raton, said he agrees.

“I think Lori Parrish has a great idea,” he said.

Adverse possession allows someone to move into a house and claim the title — if they can stay there for seven years, paying the liens and the taxes on the property. Andre Barbosa, a Brazilian national also known as “Loki Boy,” made headlines filing adverse possession on a 7,200-square foot, 5-bedroom home in a weathly Boca enclave.

Parrish says that in most cases — and Broward now has 22 of them — the filing is not worth the paper it’s printed on, particularly in one case of a filing on a beach house that is not in foreclosure.

“Why should someone take possession of a house that money isn’t even owed on?” she said. “What this is doing is legitimizing breaking and entering.”

Rest here…

    This will get attention which is good in a way … The highest profile squat I can think of is the mansion used in the movie SUNSET BLVD and also in REBEL WITHOUT A CA– USE , an abandoned Hollywood mansion squatted in by vagrants and used in 2 famous movies … This indeed is a valid law that serves a useful purpose.

    Sen. Maria Sachs, D-Delray Beach, “More funding for the courts to speed up the backlog would be one step, she said.”………..Its state reps. like this who need to be voted out of office for having that mind set. Lets just fund the rocket-docket again so we can throw more people and families out on the streets again………she needs to be voted out…….how about it people in Palm Beach County….

    Ridiculous, this is indeed the 21st Century. While mansions sit empty, the homeless die on the street. It’s moments like these where we see knee jerk servitude from public servants. Any sensible man or woman would thoughtfully reflect and consider circumstances in an effective capacity that serves the public. Foreclosure ground zero means nothing to these obedient careerists. They’ll howl and they’ll hiss when some low level pirate raises the flag in an empty castle, meanwhile, a large machine wipes away family homes statewide for years on end.
