Adverse Possession: Question 1
Read the prompt, and then type your answer in the text box below. After you submit your response, a sample answer will appear.
John parked his recreational vehicle on unimproved wooded property that he knew was owned by Paul. He lived on the property in the recreational vehicle for six years, listing the property as his residence on job applications and tax returns and having mail delivered there. He also paid the property taxes on the property. The recreational vehicle was parked in a location that was clearly visible from the street. John entertained many guests on the property, whom he led to believe that he owned the property. John also planted a vegetable garden on the property, and ran a pet grooming business from his recreational vehicle on the property. Paul did not know John was there, because he resided out of state and no one informed him that John was on the property. The property is located in a state in which the adverse possession statute of limitations is five years. At the end of five years after he first parked his recreational vehicle on the property, has John acquired title by adverse possession?
