Hi there,Thanks for your enquiry.
Could you please confirm that the land in question is fenced in and forms part of your property and therefore under your possession?
Thanks for your reply.
If the land in question is shown as belonging to you on your Deeds, then this land belongs to you UNLESS a third party can show that they have possessed and maintained the land themselves without interference from the true owner for 10 years or more.
From what you have told me, therefore, your Father has no claim whatsoever over this land.
(Even if the Deeds indicate that the land belongs to his neighbouring property, as you have possessed the land and used it as your own, you would be entitled to apply to the Land Registry for what is called "possessory title").
I hope this answers your question, but please let me know if you require any further clarification.
