This chapter draws together empirical studies on housing and property with a particular focus on residential occupation. The chapter has two central themes: property law is a destination subject through which contemporary understandings of social and crime control are mediated; and the ways in which law and legality are interpreted and invoked in social life, focused specifically on their role in the commonplace construction of home, tenure, exclusion and jurisdiction.
