Hello my name is Alex and I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return You do not need to wait here as you will get an email when I reply.
Do you accept that the boundary is wrong please?
What do your title deeds say about where the boundary is or should be?
Sadly Daniel unless the land is registered to you, then you have no right to it
This is because no matter how long you have had possession unless you have the title plan to that land then the owner can come and take it back
You could have maybe made an application for adverse possession
But sadly if the neighbour actually owns the land and you accept it, there is nothing you can do.
If you contest that the land belongs to the neighbour then he would have to take you to Court for a declaration from a Judge saying where the boundary is
But on the basis you accept the boundary is wrong I am sorry to say that you have no rights.
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Yes I am sorry.

Sadly not and the reason is when you make an application your neighbour will be notified about the application and allowed to object. I assume he will and therefore that application for adverse possession would fail.
I am sorry its not better news
Can I help with anything further?
