Say, a house next door mows a section of land as part of their yard or a university uses part of a field for football practice, but the land actually begins to a farmer... for AP, would they have to use the land consistently with their ownership/possession, or with the farmer's? E.g. would they have to be farming the land to get AP? I say no, other members of my study group say yes.
No. Do they actually cite to any specific cases, I can't even imagine where they got that idea from.
Was in property last semester, so I'm fuzzy, but there was some case about adverse possessing a summer home and the person only had to use it like the true owner did, i.e. not for the whole year.
