The Atlanta area has seen a surge in reports of people squatting in vacant homes, with estimates suggesting around 1,200 properties have been taken over.

Evicting squatters through legal channels is a slow process, leading some homeowners to take matters into their own hands.

While some squatters are simply looking for shelter, others engage in criminal activities, such as operating illegal businesses and being convicted sex offenders.

The situation has raised concerns among institutional landlords about neighborhood safety and financial impact.

Regular homeowners are particularly affected, often having to comply with squatters’ demands due to limited law enforcement intervention.
