      Ah, good old prescriptive rights. The source of much work for property litigation/disputes lawyers. The approach taken is now clear that there is much a landowner can do to protect their position. Do you have a property which includes a car park? Do you know who is parking there? Perhaps you have no idea who is using it and never bothered about it before. Now what are you going to do about it?

      We tend to think that the value of our property is based on two things: what other properties in the area are going for and what our purchaser wants to pay.

      But the terms on which we own our property matter too. That’s where we come in.
