    Advise on adverse possesion

    Hello all I’m hoping some of you can help point me in the right direction before I get started.

    I have recently saw a property that has been left to ruin for several years, I have looked into the property and it has been left empty since 1990 the owner passed away in 2003 with the property currently still not been given a new owner.

    The site is is very overgrown and very large with one dwelling an several out buildings.

    I am looking to take adverse possesion of the property, please could you advise me on steps to take - I understand I will need to secure the perimeter I have purchased the plans to check the exact boundaries of the land.

    I would not look to make this my permanent dwelling however would maintain the land and restore the property - would I experience any legal action when filling for adverse possesion if no one informs me to not access the land.

    look forward to hearing back.

    many thanks
    James

    Could it simply be the case that the executor is biding their time?

    Any planning application history on your council website?

    The owner is clearly the estate-of-deceased or his heirs. No chance ...

    Thanks Lawcrancher, I have visited Jon Maynard's website I even had the pleasure of booking an hour consultation with him, he completely agreed that my neighbour was in the wrong. I have probably read everything online about boundary disputes already. I have come across this forum today and thought...

    The following statements are usually true:

    · If a house owner wants to build an extension and it would be handy if the neighbour's fence was in the wrong place and could be moved towards the neighbour, the fence is in the right place and the boundary follows the fence.

    A line drawn at the 50% mark on the title plan with no measurements has an accuracy of a meter, Since the title plan holds no ground to demarcate the boundary line render's it useless in my case. we are disputing 3.6 meter of land between our properties where I have 2.2m and my neighbour has 1.4m. ...

    Did the neighbour object to the trespass of by the fence previous to your ownership? How was this dispute resolved? Whilst boundary plans are not definitive, a line drawn at the 50% mark in relation to actual structures is at the 50% mark.

    How do you actually know that the neighbour has...

    You might want to craftily find out when your neighbour moved in. If the fence was in its present position then, I can't see he has a leg to stand on.

    I thought you can't base the position of a boundary on a title plan given the general boundary rule. Surely If this is what the LR practice you can't just move a boundary based on plans alone. If what you're saying is right I can still make an adverse possession claim and claim the land with proof that...

    You need a statutory declaration from the previous owner (at your expense) that the fence has been where it is during his ownership. Then the clock is not reset.
