Natela Shenon of Shenon Law Group in Sherman Oaks, CA, agrees that having price predictability can be a benefit. “No matter what will happen in the economy over the course of the term of the lease, whatever price is agreed upon will stay the same. This means that the tenant also has the ability for more accurate personal-financial forecasting,” says Shenon … Staying in your current place and on a multiyear lease could bring peace of mind. “A multiyear lease gives the tenant the comfort of knowing that they can live at this place for a particular term without having to worry about possible relocation year over year,” says Shenon.

This “right” can be converted to title to the property over a period of time by adverse possession, depending on a state’s law. Attorney Natela Shenon of Shenon Law Group in California, which specializes in business law, says certain elements have to be met in order for it to be effective. For example, in California she says the possession has to be hostile, notorious and continuous, without any interruption for the statutory period, which in that state is five years. 
“Another requirement in California is that the squatter has to be paying property taxes for the statutory period for the piece of land he or she is occupying,” says Shenon.

The County is wasting taxpayers’ dollars on useless litigation when all they have to do is fix their own oversights. There is a disconnect between health objectives and constitutional rights,” she adds.
