Adverse Possession

 

Generally speaking, adverse possession is a legal doctrine that allows a person to acquire legal ownership of property by proving possession for a certain period of time.  Adverse possession is a statutory doctrine and if the statutory requirements are met, title passes as though there had been a conveyance through the traditional methods of deed transfer.
