Adverse Possession & Boundary Disputes - Live at Your Desk
Boundary disputes and adverse possession claims are often inextricably interlinked; they can blight commercial development and lead to bitter neighbour relations between residential landowners - as well as to the loss of land.
This 2-hour Learn Live session provides a useful review of the 'old' and 'current' legal systems for claiming title by adverse possession, the court's approach to resolving boundaries disputes and the impact of such findings on ownership claims as well as the practical lessons from recent case law.
What You Will Learn
This live and interactive session will cover the following:
- How the Limitation Act 1980 can still blight development land: Mitchell v Watkinson
