dc.description.abstract The doctrine of adverse possession, as most people know, operates to extinguish the owner’s title to land once a squatter has been in adverse possession of it for 12 years, and allows the adverse possessor or squatter to become the owner of that land. The doctrine still operates in this manner in Ireland and in relation to unregistered land in England. However, the English Land Registration Act 2002 dramatically reformed the doctrine in relation to registered land conferring the registered owner with the power to veto most adverse possession claims. en_US
