House trespass, also known as criminal trespass, is the act of entering someone else’s property without their permission or authorization. This is a criminal offense that can result in legal action being taken against the trespasser.
In most jurisdictions, the act of trespassing becomes a criminal offense if the property owner has communicated to the trespasser that they are not permitted to be on the property, or if the property is clearly marked with signs indicating that trespassers are not allowed.
The severity of the offense and the potential consequences vary depending on the specific circumstances of the case and the laws of the jurisdiction in question. In some cases, house trespass may be considered a misdemeanor, while in others it may be classified as a felony.
