Are you considering making an application for adverse possession over a piece of land? If so, we can advise you on the vital requirements of being successful in such a claim. To summarise, you will need to show:

  • Factual Possession
  • An Intention to possess
  • The possession must be adverse

We can apply the law to the facts to advise you whether you are likely to be successful in your claim. Depending on whether the land is registered or unregistered will depend on whether you are likely to be successful, as in registered land, there are only three circumstances where your application for registration is likely to be accepted. As a part of the process, we can do a search of HM Land Registry to determine whether the land you are claiming is registered or unregistered.

We would be more than happy to assist in any such claims which also includes boundary disputes.

If you have any questions please contact one of our offices and there will be somebody happy to help.
