Douglas & Angus Estates and another v McAllister

Title to land – Title to sue. Court of Session: Refusing an appeal from the sheriff principal in an action in which the pursuers sought to remove the defender from land, averring they were pro indiviso proprietors of the land and that he occupied it without right or title, and he denied that they owned the land but asserted no right or title himself, the court held that the pursuers, or one or other of them, had an ex facie valid title which was good enough to pursue an action against a defender who advanced no competing writ.
