In Washington State, the elements that must be met to have a claim of adverse possession are as followed: The possession must be..........
1. Exclusive. Only you, or people authorized by you, can have possession of the land in question for the required period of possession (which is 10 years). Courts have ruled that the possession does not have to be absolutely exclusive, so you will want to discuss your particular situation with an attorney (see below).
2. Actual and uninterrupted. That means that you actually have possession and control over the land in question, and that possession is not interrupted by an adversary. 3. Open and notorious. An adversary must be aware that his land is being taken. But you don't have to write the landowner, or anything like that. Your possession must be in a manner that is overt, not covert. 4. Hostile. That means that you treat the land in question as your own, and defend it against the world. Adverse possession is not created when you have the permission of the landowner to use his land (so a long-term tenant cannot claim adverse possession).
(Chaplin v. Sanders , 100 Wn.2d 853 , 857, 676 P.2d 431 (1984)) You must meet all four of these elements to qualify for adverse possession. You have the burden of proving you met each element. You must have met these elements for a minimum of 10 years.
Alternatively, if you have held a property for seven years under a "good faith color of title" and have continuously paid all taxes on that property for seven years, you need only prove actual, open and notorious possession to establish adverse possession. See RCW 7.28.070 . If you believe that you have a claim of adverse possession, or are facing an adverse possession lawsuit, you should see aattorney immediately! Adverse possession is a complicated subject, and you don't want to take it on without the guidance of a qualified attorney at law.

There are several conditions which must be met to prove adverse possession in Mississippi. Those conditions are that it is a rightful claim, that the possession is actual or hostile, that the possession has been exclusive, that possession is open and visible, it must be an uninterrupted period of ten years or more, and the possession must have been peaceful.
The period after which a claim can be made is 20 years. The claim must then be perfected by a court decree that vests title in the claimant.

In Colorado, a party filing a claim of adverse possession must establish through clear and convincing evidence that the possession is actual, adverse, hostile, under claim of right, exclusive, and uninterrupted for eighteen consecutive years with a good faith belief that the possessor is the actual owner of the property. Colo. Rev. Stat. § 38-41-101 (2010)

This legal doctrine provides that someone in possession of land continuously for a period of 10 years may receive absolute title to the land if his or her possession was adverse to the interests of the true owner. It may require a "quiet title" lawsuit to decide whether all five elements of adverse possession are present in any given factual situation. The court and jury will decide.Requirements for adverse possession claim:Actual possessionHostile (occupied with the intent to take the land from its rightful owner)Open and notorious (so long as the adverse possessor acts conspicuously and openly as though the land is his),Exclusive, andContinuous for the 10-year period, then title can be established for the adverse possessor.Tenants cannot assert adverse possession even after leasing the property from more than 10 years because they are there with the consent of the landowner (not "hostile use").Keep in mind that if a title is acquired by adverse possession, it can be made "marketable of record" only after either a court has rendered judgment that all the requirements of the doctrine of adverse possession have been met.
Yes it appears that Alabama Code §6-5-200 allows adverse possession after 10 years under recorded color of title, and, otherwise, after 20 years. The 20 years is not in the statute, but it appears to be in Alabama's Common Law. On its face, it appears to be a standard adverse possession statute, but I would disclaim that I am neither a lawyer nor a citizen of Alabama. You can research the statute or Alabama case law on FindLaw.com. Hope this helps you a little.
