A clear and concise introduction to land law, using accessible language and stressing a full understanding of a few important cases rather than a superficial list of many. Chapters end with revision summaries, exercises to test understanding and suggestions for further reading. An innovative website newly supports the sixth edition.
Land Law expertly strikes a balance between depth of coverage, comprehensiveness and accessibility in providing a clear and concise introduction to this rich area of the law. Using accessible language to illustrate the key concepts needed to understand land law, it focuses on the underlying principles to map conveniently onto undergraduate and GDL courses in the subject. Learning is supported by summary boxes, diagrams, exercises and further reading, and further enhanced with an interactive web site containing test banks and quizzes, audio files summarising key issues, real world scenarios and animated illustrations. In addition, case updates will be provided to remain abreast of new developments in law. This sixth edition contains new material on Home Information Packs, further updates arising from the Land Registration Act 2002, and changes to the area of mortgages from the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000, and Consumer Credit Act 2006. In addition the significant developments in the areas of implied trusts and proprietary estoppel will be considered and new case law will feature throughout.
