RE: property line situation

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

I don’t think you can use this to “sneak” into ownership of property that isn’t yours, however. I seem to recall from my days as a survey party chief, that this only pertained if it was done with full knowledge by the original owner that the encroachment was taking place.


As it is right now, only the government can come and take your property without due process (e.g. Kelo).

        There used to be an old common law principle whereby Party One, who used property belonging to Party Two for many years could actually claim the subject property as his own (possibly on the basis that it had been abandoned by Party Two, the original owner).
