    Post: Presumption of Abandonment

    Posted by Apollo on 3/16/07

    In the downtown there is a building that has been vacated
    and empty for years. The Gas-and-Electric meters have been
    cut-off. and debris has been left for years.

    What creates a "presumption of abandonment"? I can confirm
    that the building has been abandoned and unused for 10+
    years. Is presumption of abandonment effective against a
    public agency? The last titleholder was City Schools. I
    would like to turn the facility to a good use.
    Is there a precedent for possessing property against a
    public agency?
    *What about equitable estoppel?

    I don't know the law library well, or else I'd be better at
    looking up court cases + opinions.
