This seems like the best place for advice and info. Because I am very confused; If I get into your house and steal stuff, that is a bad thing and you will go to gaol. If I break your windows, that is a bad thing, and you will go to gaol. So far so good, but if I break into your house and change the locks, declare it my home, you're fucked and get the fun and legal expenses of getting the squatters out. If I roll up mob handed, to reclaim my home, I am in the wrong. If I break into your house and leave with your copy of The White Album by The Beatles, that is theft, and the nice Police will spend time pursuing the culprits, and hopfully bringing them to justice. My question is this; If you steal my albums/passport or other item of kit; that is theft and alledgedly, the legal system will pursue it. But if I cannot get my passport, records, or clothes, because I have squatters, this is not theft, and any attempt makes the legal owners the villains! Please excuse the long post but I would love to know the legal thinking behind it.
