RS 31:162 - Suspension of acquisitive prescription

Universal Citation: LA Rev Stat § 31:162 (2018)

§162. Suspension of acquisitive prescription

A cause that suspends the running of the prescription of nonuse applicable to mineral rights has no effect on the accrual of acquisitive prescription in favor of one possessing the surface of the land as owner insofar as his possession may include mineral rights. However, if an obstacle to use of a mineral right is created by an adverse possessor, the accrual of acquisitive prescription as to the right is suspended in the same manner as the prescription of nonuse.

Acts 1974, No. 50, §162, eff. Jan. 1, 1975.
