Adverse Possession Laws in New York
New York’s adverse possession doctrine has been in place for centuries. In certain situations involving adjacent properties, the owner of one property may build something that spills over onto the other property owner’s land. They may use the land for years or decades without knowing. Now, in certain situations per adverse possession laws, the person who uses the neighbor’s land — knowingly or not — now claims the land.
