Adverse Possession

Adverse Possession

When there are discrepancies between the physical boundary and the title boundary of a property, disputes often arise between parties about who has the right to own the contested land. This can have significant financial repercussions, necessitating the submission of an adverse possession claim to reach a lawful conclusion and achieve an equitable outcome.

At Stacey Surveying, we can provide advice and even connect you with experienced adverse possession solicitors. We understand that clarifying discrepancies between physical and title boundaries can be confusing and complicated, but you can rely on us to guide you through the process. Whether you want to obtain or retain ownership depending on your situation, we can help you to resolve the issue lawfully and fairly. We also employ a licensed land surveyor who can assist with all your surveying needs.

Get a Fair and Lawful Outcome

There are various situations that can cause physical and title boundaries to differ. This includes fences being built in the wrong place, miscalculated surveys leading to mistakes on the title, subdivision mistakes where part of the land was never sold, and unsold land that has been overlooked. These boundaries need to be cross-checked and verified in order to correct the disputed discrepancies.

Our adverse possession services involve looking over records such as plans of subdivision, plans of consolidation, and title plans. We conduct surveys to ensure fencing and other things are where they should be. We can also assist you with attempts to obtain ownership of land if you can prove that you have had exclusive possession of the contested area for at least 15 years.
