Adverse possession applications

Adverse possession applications

By Property and Environmental Law Section


The majority of adverse possessions are requisitioned regarding the evidence supplied. Many requisitions are for information missing from statutory declarations or missing evidence. The Guide to evidence supporting an adverse possession claim is a very useful resource that clearly sets out what is required.

Requisitions result in delays. If they are not answered adequately they ultimately result in the application being rejected, with fees forfeited. 

For further information, refer to the Guide to adverse possession and the Guide to evidence supporting an adverse possession claim, both available here.
