Imagine the shock of this poor ol' tycoon: he wanted to build the world's most expensive home only to find that he has a squatter in the garden!
A billionaire is planning to transform a vacant London stately house into the world's most expensive home - but can't evict a squatter who's been living there for the past 21 years.
Harry Hallowes, 71, was awarded squatters' rights last year, which means he can continue living in his tent in the grounds. His small plot is now worth a staggering £4million.

Similarly, abandoned buildings can be the arena for a squatter. They are making something useful out of what nobody has claimed or "called." Why not? I think it feels basic, wholesome, like how we cared for a piece of the earth long ago and by that virtue, that piece became our home.
