Quitclaim deed does not negate good faith for purpose of adverse possession if the occupying parties did not actually know they were on land owned by another

Georgia is one of the few states that requires "good faith" in order to acquire property by adverse possession. That means that one cannot acquire property by adverse possession if one is knowingly occupying property of another. In McBee v. Aspire at Midtown Apts., L.P. 807 S.E.2d 455 (Ga. 2017), the question arose whether an owner was precluded from asserting good faith when they signed a deed that defined the disputed parcel as belonging to a neighbor. The court held that the occupying parties was doing so in good faith despite the deed they did not know where the actual border was and did not actually know that they were occupying property belonging to another.
