There's corpo house down the road from me, with the windows and doors borded up with those steel plates. It's been like that for the past 3 years. A friend of mine is thinking about 'breaking in', taking down the boards and moving in. He said he'll put all his own money in to getting it fixed up and said he'd happily pay 100 euro a week to Dublin City Council. But I'm not sure what the consequences would be, but he reckons he has 'squatters rights' on his side.
Can anyone shed some light on this?
(ps, its not me, before you ask)
