Be they gangs or individuals, there are now a significant number of people making their living by finding empty properties and offering them to house hunters as a cheap two-year measure – the time it usually takes for repossession cases to make their way through the courts.
‘Buying’ one of these properties for the purposes of squatting costs between €1,000 and €2,000.
