Real Property : Quiet Title – Adverse Possession – Hostile

Where landowners challenged the grant of summary judgment to their neighbor on actions for quiet title and trespass, the judgment is reversed and remanded because the hostility element of adverse possession could not be defeated by the defendant’s hearsay statements regarding the intent of the landowners’ predecessors in interest.

Judgment is reversed and remanded.
