Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi, thanks for your enquiry. First and foremost, I would be very surprised if the other outhouse is not owned by your neighbour (as your neighbour has been living there for at least 20 years, it might be the case that when he purchased, it was not a requirement to register the land). Even if this was not the case and you tracked down and bought it from the owner, your neighbour would have the legal right to apply to the Land Registry for possessory title of the building, if he can show that he has possessed the building, without interruption and dispute from the true owner for 12 years or more. Sorry this isn't the answer you were looking for, but it sets out the legal position. If I have helped, please don't forget to rate my answer. Kind Regards Al
