Statutory declaration to support a SECOND application for adverse possession (registered land)

This standard document provides an outline for a statutory declaration to support a second application for adverse possession of registered land under paragraph 6 of Schedule 6 to the Land Registration Act 2002, where the squatter's original application under paragraph 1 of Schedule 6 was rejected.

The statutory declaration sets out the information that must be included to comply with the requirements of the Land Registry. For more information, see Land Registry Practice Guide 4 - Adverse possession of registered land.

Since 10 November 2008, the Land Registry has also accepted a statement of truth to support an application for adverse possession, instead of a statutory declaration (see Form ST1 - Statement of truth in support of an application for registration based upon adverse possession).
