Hi there
If they nlive there and you enter, you are making a criminal ofence
So, you must make sure that they do not live there
You can do that with external signs that nobody lives there, no supplies used, even callling a notario who makes an acta that you enter an nobody is there
So, make sure that nobody lives before you go. Go several days and check it before you enter
Thank you

Well Sir
If you are not sure he is not living there you must be carefull
If you go inside and he denounces you, you will be on troubles will the Police. It is a criminal action
So, you could use another ways, use a notario who makes an acta about there are no utilities used and witness in the same line
Or contract a local atorney who demand at court you can get in, it will need at least 1.500 euros and three months
Than you
