Legal Question

Asked on: 4/03/13, 12:13 am

My brother has found a recently vacant house in Georgia. The bank just took possession of it in late January to mid February 2013. He is thinking of moving in it as a squatter or taking adverse possession. Will he get in any trouble doing this or can he possibly get away with this? What can the bank do to him? If he tries to battle this out, how long can he possibly stay in this house? Is it true possession is 9/10ths the law? What is the ideal way for my brother to squat and get away with it? When he moves in does he immediately file for adverse possession or wait?
