Adverse Possession: Question 4
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 which he knew was owned by Paul. He lived on the property in the recreational vehicle for three years, listing the property as his residence on job applications and tax returns, having mail delivered there, and entertaining guests there. When he died, he left the property and recreational vehicle to his son, Ringo, in his will. Like John, Ringo continued to live on the property as his residence, in the same way that John did, for an additional three years. After Ringo had lived on the property just over three years, Paul commenced suit to have Ringo ejected from the property. The property is located in a jurisdiction with a five-year statute of limitations for adverse possession. Will Paul succeed in having Ringo ejected from the property, in light of the fact that Ringo possessed the property for only three years?
