Re: adverse possession and squatters rights

To acquire title to real property in the Commonwealth by way of adverse possession requires that the claimant

be in possession of the property continuously for a period of 15 years, in a manner that is open, notorious, hostile and adverse to the claim of the

owner of record, under claim of right, etc. (See Va. Code Sec. 8.01-236.)
