You may have a claim of adverse possession if you have been in actual possession of this property and such possession is adverse, hostile, exclusive, and uninterrupted for the statutory period of 7 years; and if you have, under a good faith claim and color of title, been paying taxes on the property. To obtain title to the claimed property, an adverse possessor must bring a court action of quiet title to the real property.
I am not sure how you obtained a warranty deed on this without the owner having transferred title to you. But, if the previous owner did transfer title to you at one point and you have simply just lost the deed papers, you should be able to get certified copies from the county deed records office.
Also, I am not sure what your specific question is; so I have just responded based on my best guess as to what you are asking about.
