  1. India has a huge number of cases pending in courts which pertain to illegal possession and land encroachments. With a population so large and limited resources with people, it is a common sight for us to come across illegal possessions, especially in underdeveloped areas. If you have a land which you have invested in and fear that it can be illegally possessed then you should know how to protect your land from illegal possession. This is your guide!!

    Protect land from illegal possession

    If you have a land or a property which is given on rent or is vacant then here are the ways to protect it from illegal possession.

    • If you have a property which has been rented for a long time, you must consider changing the tenants. In the past we have seen a lot of reports where the tenants refused to move out of the landlord’s place and illegally occupied the premises. This is one of the reasons that landlords prefer to make an agreement of 11 months.
    • If you have a vacant property or land, build a boundary wall which is solid and helps in keeping the illegal occupants at a distance. You should visit the property once in a while just to keep an eye. You can also hire a caretaker.
    • If you suspect an illegal encroachment on your property you can file a complaint with the SP with the concern and seek action
    • You can also seek relief under Section 5 and Section 6 of the Specific Relief Act if you have been dispossessed of your property. You will have to prove legal ownership of the property in such a case.

    I hope this clarifies how to protect your land from illegal possession.
