Good afternoon. I am Loren, an Illinois licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.
All you need do is exercise authority over your property and send a cease and desist letter to the neightbor or, in the alternative, let them know that you give them permission to mow your lawn. That permission will defeat the claim of adverse possession since the "squatter's" use must be hostile, which it is not if you give permission.
If you have no further questions please remember to rate my service so that I am credited by JA for answering your question and also so that I may close the question.
There is no additional charge to you for a 5 star rating of my service.
