Product description

In his foreword to the 3rd edition of this work former Judge of Appeal V K Rajah described it as “an indispensable reference text” for all interested in land law, written in “extremely readable prose”. The aim of this still (relatively) slim volume remains to provide a palatable guide through what many find a potentially impenetrable forest of ancient and peculiar rules. The fifth edition of Land Law states, in a clear and straightforward manner, issues in a complex area of the law. It is an introductory guide not just for students but also for other people who need to know something about the law of real property. Practising lawyers will also find it helpful. The new edition covers all developments in land law including case law and statute since the 2010 edition, and includes a new chapter on implied trusts and proprietary estoppel which covers , among other things, recent developments in the law of resulting and common intention constructive trusts.
