Show Summary Details

Preview

This book offers contemporary coverage of a traditionally difficult subject. It moves away from the typically dense, black-letter approach adopted by many textbooks to take a more engaging look at the social context within which Land Law operates. The book is structured to reflect the key topics that are typically covered on the LLB, making it ideal for use as a main textbook, and the contextual approach and selective coverage ensure that it offers in-depth and rigorous analysis and discussion. It explains difficult rules and concepts, and guides students around the common pitfalls in areas where there is typically misunderstanding or confusion. This edition includes extended coverage of the Human Rights Act in land law; new coverage of the developments concerning estoppel; and expansion of the chapters on easements and covenants, to take full account of the final Law Commission proposals relating to these areas. Coverage of the family home has been revised to deal with the impact of Stack v Dowden and the Supreme Court decision in Jones v Kernott, as has the chapter on leasehold property to assess the Supreme Court decision in Berrisford v Mexfield Housing Co-operative Ltd.

Keywords: Land Law; Human Rights Act; estoppel; easements; covenants; family home; leasehold property; Stack v Dowden; Jones v Kernott; Mexfield Housing Co-operative
