Buyinga House? Legal Stuff You Should Know Before You Sign A Contract by Alysoun M. Eversole, Esq.
EVERSOLE LAW FIRM, P.C.
Sheila King v. Margaret James and Beaufort County Treasurer; 388 S.C. 16, 694 S.E.2d 35 (S.C. App. 2010)
Held: The two year statute of limitations under Sec. 15-51-160, South Carolina Coed of Laws, does not begin to run until the purchaser at a tax sale takes possession of the property.
Fender v. Heirs at Law of Smashum; 354 S.C. 504, 581 S.E.2d (S.C. App. 2003)
Summary: The posting of "No Trespass" signs, possession of deeds from known heirs and the payment of taxes for ten years are sufficiently hostile to establish ouster of unknown co-tenants in an action to quiet title to heirs property by adverse possession.
