    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

    The owner is clearly the estate-of-deceased or his heirs. No chance ...
    I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...


      The owner on the property deeds is the Executrix however this has been the case since 2013 ?


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

        Any planning application history on your council website?
