Statutory declaration to support an application for adverse possession (registered land)
This standard document provides an outline for a statutory declaration to support an application for adverse possession of registered land under paragraph 1 of Schedule 6 to the Land Registration Act 2002.
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).
