Why are squatters rights a thing? Why is this allowed? 

I am watching a BBC show where a family moved out of their home for some renovations while the wife was pregnant and when they went to move back in 2 weeks later they found someone living in their home and couldn't move back in and because of squatters rights they have to go through legal eviction to get them out.

ETA: Show is called Nightmare Tenants, Slum Landlords

Oh and I don't understand how it's right or legal either

It would be so hard to resist the urge to make someone disappear for pulling that shot.

I thought you had to be there longer to claim squatters rights and it's bogus.

I think everywhere has a different amount of time.

I watch that show. Some of those people go into near foreclosure over that shit. I'd definitely contemplate calling Guido from the Mob to have a word with these squatters.

I have not heard of that show.  Wow.  I would not handle someone squatting in my house very well.
