BROOKS, J.

This claim primarily concerns a boundary dispute. The Proprietors of

Strata Plan No. 46 1 (PSP 46 1) wish International Hotels (Jamaica) Limited

(IHJL) to remove incorrectly placed boundary fences and to place them

along the registered boundaries between their respective lands.

IHJL, on the other hand, states that the fences were put in their

respective positions by agreement and have been in place for so long that

PSP 461 is barred from having them removed. IHJL counterclaims a

possessory title to the disputed lands as well as the benefit of the provisions

of the Limitation of Actions Act.
