Alex Watts : Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Alex Watts : How long have you had access please?
Hi, Alex, anyone can walk into the site, the fence is destroyed and it is alongside a public footpath.Is that what you wanted to know?
Alex Watts : That helps. In order to claim adverse possession you need to have fenced off the land, excluded all others and maintained it for 10 years,
I'm still here, what can I do now?
Alex Watts : If others have access then the clock does not start ticking
Alex Watts : If they owned the land previously then unless it was sold they still do own the land.
Alex Watts : You can never lose the right unless it has been adversely possessed. This has not happened in this case.
Alex Watts : But the owners won't lose their right
Thank you for that, should the land be registered if it were to be fenced?
Alex Watts : No.
Alex Watts : there would need to be an application to the owner(s) to register the land
Alex Watts : For this you can use a solicitor to make sure it is registered correctly.
Alex Watts : Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Thank you again,that was a help.
Alex Watts : Happy to help. If this answers your question might I invite you to rate my answer.
Alex Watts : If the system won't let you or you need more help please click reply.
