This recording demonstrates how to construct an answer to a problem question on adverse possession in the law of property.
Generally, a party with title to an estate in land can recover possession of the estate from a subsequent ‘squatter’. Title, however, may be lost as a result of adverse possession by squatters for a sufficient and continuous period of time.
The question answered here requires students to consider whether there has been a sufficient period of adverse possession to satisfy the requirements of the registered title system and, in the alternative, the unregistered system, on facts which involve not one but two consecutive squatters.
