What is Adverse Possession?


Commonly referred to as “squatter’s rights”, Adverse Possesion is the occupation of land by a person that is not legally entitled to it, without permission of the owner and the means to acquire title to the land after an extended period of time (usually 12 years). A formal application must be made to the Land Registry to acquire title.
