Pedis possessio

Pedis possessio is a legal phrase in common law used to describe walking on a property to establish ownership.

This concept involves the establishment of first possession of land. By walking on a property and defining its bounds, possession is established. Legal dictionaries[1] put forth this definition. Pedis possessio has been described as the actual possession of land within bounds set forth by the need of a mine claimant and operator to improve and work a claim for its mineral value.

Violation of set boundaries are avoided and violence prevented by the establishment of title using the concept of pedis possessio.[2]
