Adverse Possession Webinar

Adverse Possession

The webinar will focus on Adverse Possession, the legal term for squatter's rights in Maryland. This important legal topic and the associated concept of easement by prescription, should be understood by all farmers so that the ownership of your land is not in jeopardy.  Does your neighbor drive down your farm lane or consistently use a walking path on your property? If so, they could be forming the basis for claim to use your property now and into the future.
