    Some of the walkways around my GFs house are out of position by up to a meter in some parts. Her neighbour has now built a fence around what at first glance would appear to be his garden, but according to the deeds it is not. What takes precedence the deeds plans of the edge of the path?
    Also is there any truth in that if it stays like this for 10 years it then becomes his land?

    PS (Scotland)

    Thankyou.

    The boundaries marked on the land deeds are always the definitive ones.

    With regards to "becoming his land" then you need to google for " adverse possession " and the specifics for Scotland. In England, it is 10 years after which the squatter can apply for good title in the land, but the registered owners will be notified and can object to the application

    local land registry should have a copy..

    ask at the local library, they should be able to give you the details of how to get a copy of your deeds and plans..
