Abandoned property: a legal research guide

October 10, 2016

Feature


The Texas State Law Library reference librarians created legal research guides for specific areas of the law. The library's guide on abandoned property provides links to relevant Texas statutes, federal laws, and agency regulations on lost or abandoned property as well as resources written in “plain English.” We highlight useful articles and other digital resources that you can view from home such as:

  • Use It or Lose It [PDF] — This article from the Texas A&M Real Estate Center discusses the various limitations periods that may be applicable in an adverse possession case.
  • Texas Unclaimed Property [searchable database] — This information from the Texas Comptroller's office provide guidance on searching their database for unclaimed property.
  • Adverse Possession in Texas — This article, written by a Texas attorney, is a good primer to the issues involved with adverse possession of real property.

If you have a question or would like more information about any of our legal research guides, please feel free to contact us.
