I want to convey a meaning that, a person was and is owner of that place. Obviously, saying "he was always an owner of that place" is other way of saying it, but it means- right from the start.
This is not a law question but I want to say that, a person was an owner of that place when some incident happened in the past (may be or roughly 25 years a go or who knows, may be 35), and now also he is owner of that place. So, how to use a verb indicating that he was and he is the owner of the place?
A comment and an answer suggest that I should use present perfect tense.
Is this sentence correct? Does it convey, what I want to say?
He has been owner of that house when incident happened.
