Adverse Possession: Boundary Rights. Property Rights. 

Adverse Possession is a complex area of law that requires an experienced Real Estate Attorney. If successful, a person can obtain ownership of land that previously was not theirs. In order to assert a claim of adverse possession in California, the claimant must demonstrate: 1) adverse and hostile possession; 2) continuous possession for a period of five years; and 3) payment of all property taxes during the five-year period.  The elements to a claim for adverse possession can and are difficult to analyze at times, but a real estate attorney can help you with that.

Each situation is unique and it is important to consult with an experienced real estate attorney to understand the requirements you must fulfill and what rights, if any, you have to a piece of property.  Similarly, it is important to understand how to protect yourself and your property from an unwanted adverse possession action.
