    I was reading up on squatting laws and there was something that I was having trouble understanding. It say's that you can be imprisoned or fined for squatting in a residential property. So what exactly is considered non residental are vacant properties considered non residental.

    Doesn't matter. You can be arrested and prosecuted for squatting in any kind of property that isn't your own.

    It's called trespassing.

    What is "it"? Is "it" a section of the Penal Code? If so, which section? If not, please cite what you're talking about.

    You understand that "squatting" means trespassing, right?

    "Residential" describes property of the sort where humans might live. It is contrasted with "commercial," "industrial," "agricultural," etc. "Vacant" simply means property that isn't currently occupied.

    Well, just a strange thing to be reading about in one's spare time.
