Adverse possession (Victoria)

Adverse possession is a legal principle that enables the occupier of a piece of land to obtain legal ownership (from the current owner being the registered owner named on the Title). To be successful they need to prove uninterrupted and exclusive possession of the land for at least 15 years (in Victoria). Times vary for other states/territories.
