Hi! My name is Richard & I will be helping you today! It will take me a few minutes to type a response to your question. Thanks for your patience!
The time period for adverse possession "tacks" from owner to owner. It does not start over every time the ownership of the property changes. The issue is with the elements of adverse possession, not with the owner. So, your time does not start the period over; rather, you can count all the years during which the adverse possession occurred regardless of ownership.
