Adverse Possession essentially allows a person to claim title to land that is not owned by them where that person has had exclusive possession of that land for a period of 15 years without the consent of its true owner.  Adverse Possession commonly arises in instances where fences or buildings encroach over a title boundary, or where someone has fenced off and used an area of land that does not belong to them.
