Hi

We own a resident land which was given to us by my fathers elder brother. Still now we have not register the land in our name and the land is in the name of my fathers elder brother, but the original document of the land was given to us when we took the land in our position. Now when we ask him to sign the document and register the land in our name he refesues to sign. This land was given to us before 10 years. now the land value is high. what shall we do to get his sign and write the document in our name.

Thanks
Muthukumar

That means you are in possession of the property in question for the last 10 years which is less than what is even required to claim adverse possession being 12 years. No way Mr. Muthukumar that you can get the property as owner except through documentation coupled with registration. Get your paternal uncle to sweet terms for your possession coupled with handing over of the title deeds is well and strongly protected by the law in India.

Dear Mr Kumar
Adverse possession for 12 year or more does not provide a right title or interest in property. It is created only after 20 year against private person and 30 year against the Government. After an adverse possession of 12 year you get only a right to remain in property and a true owner can not dispossess you forcibly. In case a true owner files a suit for possession after 12 year ( say after period of limitation) his right is extinguished as per s 27 of limitation act and a person in adverse possession have a good defense with him but it does not mean that this section gives any right to a trespasser. A trespasser (say a person in adverse possession) gets right under easement act only and no other way.
