Boot v Bromford Housing Association Ltd

Land – Adverse possession. On the evidence, the appellant had failed to show not only factual possession of the land at issue but also the intention to possess it and to exclude the world as a whole. Accordingly, he had failed to establish title by adverse possession. Consequently, the Upper Tribunal (Tax and Chancery Chamber) dismissed the appellant's appeal against the decision of the Land Registration Division of the First-tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) to direct the Land Registrar to cancel the appellant's application to be registered as proprietor of that land.
