This podcast is about adverse possession in registered land. It looks at the recent case of Baxter v Mannion (2011) and the approach taken by the Court of Appeal in that case as to the circumstances by which a squatter can apply to have themselves made a registered proprietor.

It also examines the mechanics by which the adverse possession regime applies in registered land and demonstrates that a registered proprietor's failure to serve a counter-notice in response to an application for registration of title by an adverse possessor is not necessarily disastrous.
