Appellants-Defendants Coy L. Capps and Margaret M. Capps (“the Cappses”) appeal from the trial court’s order awarding Appellees-Plaintiffs Jeffrey A. Abbott and Teresa J. Abbott (“the Abbotts”) a small parcel of land by means of adverse possession and a prescriptive easement across the Cappses’ property.
Conclusion (slip op. at 10): Having concluded that the Abbotts have acquired title to the 0.021 acre parcel of land immediately south of the farm fence which was erected on the parties’ boundary line as determined by the 1990 survey, and that the Abbotts have acquired the right to use Walnut Street as a method of ingress and egress by means of a prescriptive easement, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
Key Analysis (slip op. at 9-10): The Abbotts’, as well as their predecessors-in-title’s, use of Walnut Street constituted an open and continuous use of another’s land with knowledge on the part of the owner for the required twenty years . . . because nothing in the record indicates that either the Abbotts or their predecessors-in-use had ever been granted permission to use Walnut Street, such use was in fact adverse to the Cappses and their predecessors-in-title.
