Yes they have to pay utilities.

What about taxes, insurance and all that other crap that comes with home-ownership? It's got to be difficult to pay for utilities for a house that big. They'll probably live there for a few months before they realize they can't afford the upkeep, and then what? Back to the shelter?

Its really cool? All he's doing is giving them a house

Where do they get the money to live?

David Gilmour donated a mansion to the homeless. He sold it and donated the money (£3.6 million). He also didn't make a press release and pose for a photo op.

He's given them $1000, okay... That won't last forever, but it's not a bad start, it should last a few weeks, time to look for jobs. If they don't get jobs, then they can start selling property from the house. Simple. I'm sure they can find some way of making money before the house becomes empty

They're hardly going to get the best of jobs though...being homeless people and all...

Well I'm sure they're smart enough to not think, "Hmmm, we're not earning much per week, I know! Let's put the heating on full and watch seven televisions at once!"

But they're not homeless anymore

I think the guy should help them get jobs. He's obviously very rich doing something... I'm sure he can pull some strings to get them some sort of job with his company.

Read on. The guy has a history of making people homeless so he can sell property and make a quick buck. A great gesture, and great for those he gave housing to, but a blatant attempt to try and wipe the mud from his reputation.
And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust? Man delights not me: no, nor woman neither... nor women neither.

Because homeless people just instantaneously have the skills for whatever job it is he would give them...which earns enough money to pay for living in a mansion

Argh, the more I think about this the more I think he's a ****ing asshole

It seems like he's only doing this so he looks good
#18
yeah well i mean bottom line is that he gave a homeless person a mansion. Thats not a mean thing. Even if it was just for publicity the person still got a free mansion. So what if hes doing it to look godd which im sure he is, at every big football game they give away some huge check to some charity and they mention there product every change they get but no one gets mad at them.

They don't have to be good at something that would afford living in a mansion.. he just has to pay them more than they deserve for the work they do. It's not that hard to be a secretary or receptionist.. and they make a lot more money than some laundry attendant.

Besides... it says in the article he only picked working, single mothers.

Meaning they already have a job. Granted, it's probably not enough to pay utilities and food for their 4 kids... but having two jobs and living in a mansion is better than having one job and living on the streets...

I think the bottom line is that he's a human being devoid of morals, doing one small good thing in an attempt to attone for probably a lifetime of climbing ladders and taking huge festering shits on everyone below him.

What a great guy!

There's a thing called Squatters rights, if you leave your window open, and you're out, and someone comes in without breaking anything, you can't make them leave. But they can't use your property.

Also if they stay there for 12 years and 1 day, and they have proof, then they get the house. But you can file a court order and get them removed before that happens. It's all very dodgy but it's true.
#23
Awh, why can't someone do something nice without being questioned?

I hope it works out for them and inspires to do the same.

He has been criticized for evicting tenants of his rental homes on short notice so he could sell the properties, as in 2002 when he gave hundreds of California tenants 30 days to leave.

Two years later, he served eviction notices to tenants in 27 Oahu rental homes, mostly in pricey Hawaii Kai, saying they had to leave within a month. He said he wanted to sell the houses to take advantage of rising prices.


Sounds like a fine, upstanding and caring individual.

It dosen't matter. If you have the deed to the house, and you have a squatter living with you for 12 years and a day then he gets the house.

No, what's pointless is giving somebody a huge house that they can't afford to live in without giving them any sort of help to pay bills.

And I think the squatter's rights laws only apply in certain areas and to property that nobody is currently living in.

Don't forget, they were okay paying $800 per *time period* before.

They're still working, so unless their wage has decreased, they're still earning more than $800 per *time period*.

So all they really have to do is control the use of utilities and the like.

No, it's if the squatter lives in the property for 12 years and nobody claims ownership of it. They have to prove they've lived there continuously for those 12 years, though.

I know squatters can get a "section 6" that states they're the legal occupants and entering without their permission is illegal... even for the person who legally owns the building, and you have to go through court to shift them.

That's in the UK anyway. Except Scotland, where it's legal to turf them out by any means you can get away with in a court of law.

Squatting is some crazy shit.
