  1. Introduced by Rep. Joel Sheltrown (D) on February 13, 2007, to establish that a person may not claim “adverse possession” of a parcel of land on which the owner of record has regularly paid property taxes. “Adverse possession” is the process by which a person claims title to real estate by virtue of having occupied the property in a way that is “open, notorious, exclusive and adverse to the claims of other persons to the title.” Depending on the circumstances, the occupancy must be for between five and 15 years.
    • Referred to the House Judiciary Committee on February 13, 2007.
