A property was purchased by my father 20 years ago, but a trespasser occupied the property. My father got to know about it a few days back, when the trespasser filed a suit to claim the ownership of the property. We were in this belief that the property is vacant. Can he succeed?

 In such a situation, if the trespasser occupied the possession of the property for a continuous period of 12 years and your father did not interrupt the same, then the trespasser can claim the property based on adverse possession.
