The legal position is that under the law of adverse possession, you are entitled to make an application to the Land Registry to be granted possessory title of the land which does not legally belong to you. This is on the grounds that you have possessed the land for more than 10 years, without dispute or hindrance.
Although this does of course involve you in taking a positive step to set things straight, your neighbour would hopefully be advised by any Solicitor that he would be wasting his time in trying to dispute your possession of this land!
I trust this assists and if so, I would be grateful if you could rate my answer in the top right hand corner of your screen.
