Nata lee Ltd v Abid and another

Boundary – Disputed land. The proceedings concerned a boundary dispute, in which the claimants alleged, inter alia, that the variation of the boundary between their property and the defendant's property had been accomplished by an informal agreement and, alternatively, that they and their predecessors in title were in adverse possession of the disputed land. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, held, inter alia, that the judge had been wrong to have found adverse possession of the disputed land. The result of that conclusion, coupled with the inapplicability of the doctrine in Neilson v Poole([1969] 20 P&CR 909) as to boundary agreements, meant that the appeal would be allowed on that point.
