Definition of the noun Adverse possession
What does Adverse possession mean as a name of something?
- [legal]: A means of acquiring title to another's real property without compensation by occupying the property in a manner that is actual, open and notorious, exclusive, hostile, under cover of claim or right, and continuous for a certain number of years.
Adverse possession is a method of acquiring title to real property by possession for a statutory period under certain conditions, viz: proof of non-permissive use which is actual, open and notorious, exclusive, adverse, and continuous for the statutory period. It is governed by statute concerning the title to real property. By adverse possession, title to another's real property can be acquired without compensation, by holding the property in a manner that conflicts with the true owner's rights for a specified period. For example, squatter's rights are a specific form of adverse possession.
