Squatting refers to the practice of inhabiting and occupying ununsed land and buildings. The law states that after 7 years of occupation, the inhabitants can claim ownership of the unclaimed land.

Squatters are kindred or kine that inhabit such occupied housing throughout the city. They often experiment with alternative ways of living and working together, often built around sharing costs and benefits.

Small social communes like this can be found especially in the Lindenau area. It comes as no surprise that this practice is especially popular among the Anarchs.
