positive prescription

in Scots law, a period of time that fortifies a defective title. Thus, a person who obtains land from a person who does not own it but has a title that on the face of it is valid and is able to include the property in question will obtain a valid title in ten years if it is possessed openly and peaceably and without interruption. For England see ADVERSE POSSESSION.
