Adverse possession

Adverse possession occurs where you are occupying land which you believe to be yours, but you are not registered as the owner. You may have ‘adversely possessed’ the land.

After the introduction of the Land Registration Act 2002, the period of adverse possession for occupied land was reduced to 10 years. After that, the occupier can apply to the Land Registry to acquire a proprietary interest in the land. Our commercial property lawyers are able to assist you with adverse possession application under both the old and new rules, depending on what is the most relevant to your situation.
