Is there such a thing as squatters rights in Florida?'s called Adverse Possession. You have to have lived on the piece of property at least 7 years & paid the land taxes for the part you lived on. I am going through it at this time. The Supreme Courts are about to stop this law. So, if you have an issue, you better get it filed now through an attorney.

Another Perspective

There is no such thing as squatters "rights" in the United States. Until a person has satisfied all the state requirements to perfect a claim of adverse possession, and then takes the legal steps to perfect that claim, they are considered a trespasser.
