Possibly. If he can prove to a court that he has openly used
the property, did not have permission to use the property and
his use was continuous. (not interrupted by the owner of
record.) However, if the owner of record will sell for
$1,000 it might not be worth the expense of bringing an
action for adverse possession in a court.
