Re: Can a Tenant Claim Adverse Possession on Property They Occupied Under a Lease
not notice of neglect but neglect of notice.
The filing of the deed was the notice and you neglected it.
Personally, I am wholly against a claim as such being supported as while the filing of the deed was technically notice of the action, it's not like the registers office calls up people and says "Hey, did you know there was a deed filed transferring property you own?" Seriously, it is a poor notice. It's not like people check their property title every year, or at all for that matter.
Regardless, if LS believes it may be a problem, he is likely correct. This is his area of expertise and experience.
I am not an attorney and any advice is not to be construed as legal advice. You might even want to ignore my advice. Actually, there are plenty of real attorneys that you might want to ignore as well.
