Customer Question

In oklahoma, regarding the required number of years to qualify for adverse possession. Do the years transfer with new ownership? What I am asking is, if i recently purchased a peice of real estate and the previous owners qualified for adverse possession on a few feet of the neighbors land, do I still qualify even though I have only been there for 3 months? Or does the required time start over on the date I acquired the land?

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.
