A person who occupies land belonging to someone else without permission (i.e., without a formal licence or lease, or a verbal consent) is a Squatter. A Squatter can become the lawful owner of land by virtue of adverse possession after a certain period of time. To be in adverse possession, a Squatter must show factual and physical possession of the land and at the same time, show that he or she has the necessary intention to possess the land, which means excluding everyone from the land, even the true owner.Read More

Congratulations to the Conveyancing Team at Moore & Tibbits who have secured accreditation to the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS) for another year.
With so many options of who to choose for your conveyancing needs, we feel it is important that clients receive the highest standards of service and expertise which is endorsed by this accreditation. Would you employ a plumber who was not Gas Safe registered to fix your boiler? We feel this is the same when considering a conveyancing solicitor to deal with possibly the largest transaction that most people make in their lives.
How many decisions did you make today? Did you choose what you wore, ate, where you slept, how much you spent, who you spoke with and where you went? Perhaps without realising it, you make hundreds of decisions – big and small – every day. Some decisions feel onerous and we labour over them, while others we reflexively quip exactly what it is we want.Read More
A person who occupies land belonging to someone else without permission (that is, without a formal licence, lease or without verbal consent) is known as a squatter. If certain conditions are met, a squatter can actually become the lawful owner of land. If you’re a property owner, particularly if you own lots of land or if it’s not your usual place of residence, it would be wise to know what rights squatters have and how you can keep ownership of your land.Read More
Anyone familiar with BBC One’s Heir Hunters programme will know about the otherwise relatively unknown and niche industry of probate genealogy research. When someone passes away, they leave behind an estate; it’s necessary to distribute that estate to the rightful heirs, known as beneficiaries. As the programme highlights, it’s not always easy to identify who should benefit from the estate or, if the beneficiary is known, to locate their whereabouts.Read More
You may have only just finished getting rid of those last, stubborn granules of sand that pocketed themselves from your last summer holiday (where do they keep coming from?), but that time of the year is nearly upon us again. Just a few more weeks and school will be out, which can be terribly exciting for kids, but can be enough to make parents order double-shot espressos – when they don’t even drink coffee. And, if you’re divorced, the summer holidays can be enough to tip you into caffeine-addiction territory.Read More
