Los Angeles Adverse Possession Attorneys

Few attorneys in California have ever actually tried an adverse possession case.  We are different – we have and we won. Schorr Law’s lead real estate attorney Zachary D. Schorr successfully tried an adverse possession case in the summer of 2013 and won, acquiring 100% legal and beneficial title to real property in Los Angeles for Schorr Law’s client.

In California, adverse possession is a method of gaining legal title to real property by the actual, open, hostile and continuous possession of it and payment of taxes on it for 5 years.    While adverse possession may seem like an old or seldom used legal theory, it actually has modern day use and consequences.

At Schorr Law we have been involved with several different types of adverse possession cases, including the following:

  • Obtaining title to real property by adverse possession in a co-tenant situation in Los Angeles;
  • Using adverse possession in the probate context to argue our client had acquired title to trust property through adverse possession;
  • Using adverse possession to re-assign and acquire a greater percentage of interest in real property in West Los Angeles.

Adverse possession claims have a close relationship to prescriptive easement claims.   The overlap between the two types of claims allows us to apply principles learned in both venues.  We also frequently litigate prescriptive easement claims.

For help analyzing or litigating your potential adverse possession claim, contact the real estate attorneys at Schorr Law, 310-954-1877, info@schorr-law.com.
