Here to minimise disruption. Here to provide clear and pragmatic options to resolve the issue.

We can advise occupants, landlords, tenants, and property owners on squatters and adverse possession claims.

Adverse possession, sometimes referred to as squatting, is the occupation of land by a person who is not legally entitled to or authorised to be there. If a person or company adversely possesses a piece of land or property for a certain time period, while meeting the essential requirements, they may be able to apply to the Land Registry for legal ownership.

Our team is able to assist you with all the essential requirements of adverse possession claims including evidencing factual intentions and possession, preparing and submitting applications or objections to the Land Registry, and if needed advice through to negotiations and Tribunal proceedings.
