I would check with an attorney on this one. Some things to consider.
1. How long has this property been heir property?
2. Who has been maintaining it (paying the taxes and for upkeep)
3. Has that maintenance been notorious (have the neighbors seen you, for example, caring for the property regularly)?
If you have been occupying and maintaining the property for ten years, ask your attorney about how adverse possession works or whether that might apply here.
