The house has been vacant for 10 plus years now and there have been people squatting there which is my main concern there have been reports of 2 fires and drug use and fights i'm guessing the people who still stay there are meth heads when i walked in the floor was in really bad shape there was a needle close by and there aren't any signs that the people who are squatting it are actually taking care of it in a report it said that they would throw trash outside of the building almost on a daily basis when i crawled in it was empty there was a kitchen knife stuffed into a corner and a piece of glass and a shelf on the side of the entrance the inside was terribly kept i wouldn't really like to kick the current inhabitants out i guess i'm just gonna have to try to make a deal with them and work this situation out. ant advice on how i should approach this?

If the tweakers don't burn the place down by accident, they will steal your shit every chance they get, call the cops on each other every month when their obamaphones go on, and generally be lousy neighbors. If you have to share with drug addicts, i would go with junkies every time over meth-heads, and i used to be one.

Find another building.

Don't share a squat with tweakers and don't try to work a deal with them. Find another place.

Edit: also don't attempt to kick them out of their home just because you want it, that uh...is just fucked up. Best advice I would say is to find another building preferably far away from that one.

As far as I'm aware, step 1 is actually living there for 5+ years.

Yep squatter's rights are basically finders/keepers, however, you're a late-comer to that situation - don't waste your time trying to rescue from the current residents

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$35.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $35.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $35.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $35.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $35.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
