Thanks Bluegrass lass - I did investigate 'Adverse Possession', as it is called in the UK - it seems be referred to here in canada as 'squatters rights' but in order for it to be effective it is necessary to show 20 years of continuous use and occupation - unfortunately the house has only been built for 15 years so would not qualify

I think the 'Title Insurance' is going to be our best way of getting some sort of compensation, maybe all costs covered - who knows! Thanks for the link Shelley748!

DandNHill - I am in Windsor so a bit of a far off treck from you! I will PM you!

Just sittin around playin the waiting game now to find out how much land they are prepared to sell and for how much!

Hurrah Hurrah Hurrah!!!

Had confirmation today that the title insurance company will pay for the purchase of 0.25acres and pay all the associated costs including lawyers fees and surveying costs!!

Closing date is set for January 14th - hopefully will be all plain sailing now!!

What a nightmare, but there does appear to be light at the end of the tunnel - roll on 2012 and getting on that flight back to the UK, never to return!!!!!

Great to hear - but when you think of it, that's what title insurance should be for (and it costs enough!) Even so, in these situations it is always worrying whether they will find some loophole to let them wriggle out of their responsibilities.

Oh it is nice to know that title insurance works We have just bought a acreage in the Red Deer area, that didn't have a real property report so we got title insurance instead, because it's so much cheaper, seems to be really common as it's the second place we have bought with title insurance.

I hope everything else falls into place too.
