Adverse Possession Claims

Adverse possession of property occurs when someone who is not the legal owner of property trespasses and occupies it for a specified period of time, then applies successfully to become the registered owner of that property.

A squatter can become entitled to adverse possession after ten years if they can prove they have actually been in occupation for that period and they reasonably believe the property belongs to them.

The legal owner of a property can oppose the squatter’s application for adverse possession provided they act quickly and within the requisite time period. It is important to keep all Land Registry documents safe and to ensure that you are registered as the proprietor at Land Registry.

We advise clients on all matters of adverse possession in a timely and efficient manner to ensure that their legal entitlements are not hindered.
