So the neighbour
has fenced the land off and been using it for 11 years? During that time, he
has had exclusive possession?
I'm afraid to
tell you that in which case, he is entitled to have the land registered as his
own under the doctrine of Adverse Possession.
He has occupied
it without consent and it appears without objection and not in secret for over
If however you
have proof that you have objected to this over the last 10 years, you can
oppose his application for registration. Once the registration application is
received by the land Registry, they will write to you in any event.
If you have
simply let sleeping dogs lie during the course of the last 10/11 years, that
really does thwart your defence to his application.

Can I assist any
further with this? Please bear with me today and this weekend because I will be
online and off-line.
