Alex Watts : I see.
Alex Watts : They are wrong,
Alex Watts : They never get a right to the land.
Alex Watts : You always own it. They can never take possession.
Alex Watts : There is a thing called adverse possession.
Alex Watts : But for this they need to occupy for 10 years and make an application to the land regsotry.

Alex Watts : I hope this reassures you,
