A documentary film followed by a question and answer session with the film maker. In the Documentary Carefree vacant property (Leegstand zonder zorgen) seven Dutch tenants of the 2 largest anti-squat agencies, Camelot property management and Ad Hoc property management, are followed to investigate the consequences of living in a house without tenancy rights. Who uses the services of anti-squat agencies?

How do politicians, housing experts, lawyers and other people involved in vacant property management judge this rising phenomenon?

The documentary makes visible this hidden reality and tries to stir up the debate around what are better ways of dealing with empty properties.

Anti-squat agencies are rapidly spreading in Europe and are already active in The Netherlands England, Belgium France Germany and Ireland.

    Camelot might claim (in their PR) to be “active” in Germany – but thankfully (?) they’re not (yet), though they wanted to start their business here about 2 years ago.
