Re: Adverse Possession of Reo / Bank Owned Home in Florida
From the Law.com legal Dictionary:
breaking and entering n. 1) the criminal act of entering a residence or other enclosed property through the slightest amount of force (even pushing open a door), without authorization. If there is intent to commit a crime, this is burglary. If there is no such intent, the breaking and entering alone is probably at least illegal trespass, which is a misdemeanor crime. 2) the criminal charge for the above.

The doctrine of Adverse Possession has two primary purposes. One is to provide a means by which valid title could be had to truly abandoned real property. Another is to provide a means of perfecting title to lands occupied, generally under a good faith belief of a valid title claim, which adjoin lands to which the claimant has valid written title. It does not exist to provide a legal loophole as a means to intentionally take the property of another against their will. That is theft.
