121. Possessory title.

Where the seller's title has been acquired by adverse possession under the Limitation Act 19801 the buyer can be forced to complete2. However, proof that the seller and those through whom he claims have had independent possession of land for 12 years3 is not sufficient to establish a saleable title without evidence to show the state of the title at the time the possession commenced.
