Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Have you ever registered the land in your name please?Alex
Ok - is the Council land registered?
Did the Council object to your registration or didnt it get that far?
Ok - then thats ok, you can still apply for adverse possession.
But you need to show 10 years use, excluding all others.
The Land Registry will notify the Council if your intent to register. The Council will then have a limited time to object to it. If they dont then can be registered.
If they do object then your application fails. Unless its registered in your name, you can be kicked off that land at any time, it does not matter how long it has been.
For more guidance please see:
