If a squatter is successful in staying on the property for at least seven years, he gets to keep it, free and clear.

Preface: I had to read this question several times. Pardon my obvious confusion. All references are as to the laws of the State of Washington. Adverse possession can only be met by proving each of the following elements (Muench v. Oxley, 90 Wn. 2d. 637, 584 P2d. 939 (1978)): the possession must be open and notorious, actual and uninterrupted, hostile, exclusive, and under a claim made in good faith. The necessary period of possession is 10 years; however, one who possesses under color of title and pays taxes for 7 consecutive years can bring an adverse possession action at the end of the 7 year period (RCW 7.28.070). If one element of the test is missing, the property cannot be claimed by adverse possession. Clearly, if two different people claimed title to a property by adverse possession,and both used the property during the 10 year period, neither one would have had exclusive and uninterrupted possession of the property, thereby failing the second prong of the adverse possession test introduced in Muench v. Oxley. One could also claim that the possession was not open and notorious, as well. In conclusion, neither party would succeed in their adverse possession claim because they would fail to meet each element of the adverse possession test.

When a person purchases a plot of real estate, he or she may not know the laws governing adverse possession. It is important to thoroughly understand the doctrine of adverse possession, to avoid having other people claim one's own land. Adverse possession is simply a common law concept which concerns the title to a piece of real property. Through adverse possession, a person may claim title to another person's real property without compensation. The way in which a person claims this title to another person's real property is by holding the property in a manner that outright conflicts with the real owner's rights for a specific period of time. There are elements a person must meet in order to adversely possess a tract of land. These elements make up an easy acronym to remember, AN ECHO. First, a squatter must hold a tract of land openly and notoriously. These elements fall under the O and N of AN ECHO. The squatter must give reasonable notice to the owner that he or she is claiming dominion on the owner's tract of land. Possession must also be exclusive. This falls under the E of AN ECHO. A squatter's exclusive possession means that he or she can not share possession with the owner or the public. The possession must also be actual. Actual possession means that the squatter must have actual entry on a piece of the land, which will then give rise to constructive possession of the land. Actual possession will make the statute of limitations begin running for possession of the land. A squatter must also be sure to hold a tract of land adversely and hostilely. To further elaborate on what it means to hold land openly and hostilely, hostile means that land is being held without a true owner's consent. The adverse element means that possession must be under a claim of right, and it must look like the possessors actions are claims of ownership. The claims of ownership must appear that way to the surrounding community. Lastly, to hold a tract of land adversely or hostilely, a squatter must pass the objective or subjective test. The objective test is that it looks like a claim of title, but a person says it is not, then it is a claim of right. The subjective test is that the adverse possessor has good faith that he has the title to the land. The other elements that must be met for adverse possession are that possession is continuous and under claim or title or color of title.

Adverse possession is without the permission of the owner. Permissive possession is with the permission of the owner. If you have the permission of the owner to use the property that means you can never make an adverse claim to wrest title from the owner.

You cannot claim adverse possession on property you had permission to use. Forget it.
