Customer Question
My name is *****...

My name is ***** *****. For the past 40 plus years strip of land next to mine has been used by my family mainly to graze sheep. As you would expect we had to fence to ensure sheep did not stray. Q1 What entitlement do I have to owning this land?

Lawyer's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
