HAPCO- South Philadelphia Rehabber’s Sub Group

January 27th, 2020


4th Monday of the Month

Location: Moonshine Philly 1825 E Moyamensing Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19148 (Pennsport Mall Parking Lot for Parking)

Educational Speaker: Michael L. Daiello, Esq., Daiello Law

Discussion: Adverse Possession cases; learn about how a long time occupant can claim title to property under the 21 or 10 year rules

Overview: Whether you own a small home outside of Philadelphia or a large plot of land in Bucks County, Pennsylvania property owners should be aware of the doctrine of adverse possession. If you have neighbors whose land borders yours, and who start to cross the property line and use portions of your land, those neighbors might be able to gain legal title to those portions under a legal doctrine known as “adverse possession.” While it might be less likely in such a crowded city, it’s worth realizing that a trespasser can also essentially squat on your land and eventually claim legal ownership
