Has anyone had any experiences with adverse possession? Have you instigated proceedings to claim someone else's land or been on the receiving end of a claim? Obviously mediation and fairness is the ideal and avoiding a costly legal battle. However, in the case of a hostile party what experiences if any have you had? A friend of ours has a property where the neighbour had boarded up access (placed iron sheets on a wire fence and gate situated 1.5m within our friends property) to land that belongs to our friend. Thus the neighbour is claiming the land on their side is theirs - assumed adverse possession (stealing). Our friend has unblocked the gate and the neighbour is irate. The friend is seeking legal advice. I thought with many investors on here and a property experience that someone may have been through this.
