5.0 out of 5 stars The best investment for any land law student 9 Mar 2009
I could not recommend a better land law guide. After really struggling with the topic since starting my second year, I have discovered this book. Nothing that I have come across has explained things so clearly and simply. It helps you actually come to grips with the basics of the subject, and allows you to go on to understand the topic further.

I would thoroughly encourage any land law student to buy this book, even if it is just for a quick read to go over your current knowledge.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for revising 28 Mar 2010
I got the whole series for my CPE and if it's a quick fix for revision you are after or indeed if you are totally baffled, these are the books to go for. Obviously, it's not in great depth but they really are easy to follow and should get you through with most exams. Leave the heavyweights till you get to grips with the key concepts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! 10 Jun 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I really struggled with land law especially the textbooks i was supposed to be reading. This book takes all the essential information from the larger thicker textbook and condenses it. It contains more information than a law express book but less information than a big textbook. This is all you would need in my opinion to pass an exam it is great. Also there's given essay questions and problem questions at the end of each chapter and you can go online and access the answers.

5.0 out of 5 stars The only land law book you'll need for the GDL 25 Sep 2009
If you are doing the GDL save some money and just buy this book, it's wicked. It has all the info you need and enough detail for you to get a distinction if you read and extra bits you need in the larger books in the library or online. I loved this book and it was the only one I bother with when it cam to revision. MacKenzie and Phillips is also good but you probably won't have the time for that book on a GDL.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good in the Altogether. Lacking in other areas. 21 May 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I own the Land, Trusts and EU volumes of this series and generally I would say they are quite good. Useful flowcharts and web links as well as pointers to academic articles are all a nice change from the normal format.

What bothers me a little about this book is the lack of content on proprietary estoppel. There is a little bit about licences by estoppel but I am surprised that much of the topic is instead shoved on to the Equity & Trusts Concentrate, which seems frankly counter-intuitive.

Additionally, leasehold covenants and adverse possession, which are not always covered in great detail seem to receive rather a large amount of attention, possibly an indicator that it's not a land law guide made for the most academic types of degree course. This seems in complete contrast to the Trusts guide which did hit the spot for my purposes.

Nevertheless, I think it's good for registration, licences/leases, easements, mortgages and restrictive covenants.
