Matt Furman in article examines meaning of ‘clear proof' in MA adverse possession, prescription cases

Matt Furman in an article posted on the REBA Blog examines the meaning of “clear proof” required in Massachusetts prescriptive easement and adverse possession cases.

As Matt explains, successfully proving either claim in Massachusetts requires “clear proof” of the necessary legal elements of each by a preponderance of the evidence.

While nothing more than a gloss on the preponderance of evidence standard, the “clear proof” component has significant practical importance for real estate litigators, Matt writes in the blog post published by the Real Estate Bar Association.

An experienced litigator, Matt has extensively represented landowners in a wide variety of real estate conflicts, including adverse possession and prescription claims.
