  • The derelict house with its doors and window shutters gone and with none to take care of it is now the retreat of derelicts, vagabonds, nesting birds, and reptiles.
  • The derelict land has been occupied by land grabbers, whom it will be very difficult to evict, as they encroached it a long time ago.
