Dear Customer ,
Thank you for posting your squatter's rights legal question in NJ. Squatters must have been in occupation for 20-60 years, depending on the property type to acquire any legal rights of possession.
Trespassing is illegal and you can continue to file police reports or contact your local DA's office to pursue a criminal action against the trespasser.
You should also contact the legal owner who may bring a civil action and action , eviction or quiet title action against the squatter where law enforcement are reluctant to get involved.
We are here to help.
Please follow up with me where you require additional clarification or information.
In return remember to rate positively today.
