Possessor in Bad Faith

He who builds, plants or sows in bad faith on the land of another, loses what is built, planted or sown without right of indemnity. (Art. 449 of the Civil Code)

The possessor in bad faith shall reimburse the fruits received and those which the legitimate possessor could have received, and shall have a right only to the expenses mentioned in paragraph 1 of Article 546, and in Article 443. The expenses incurred in improvements for pure luxury or mere pleasure shall not be refunded to the possessor in bad faith, but he may remove the objects for which such expenses have been incurred, provided hat the lawful possessor does not prefer to retain them by paying the value they may have at the time he enters into possession. (Art. 549 of the Civil Code)
