Designed to enliven the subject of land law for a student audience, Making Sense of Land Law is the ideal companion to an otherwise intricate and occasionally difficult area of law. It is written with the student in mind, taking care to explain the essential concepts in a clear and engaging style, bringing them to life with question and answer debates and real examples, underpinned throughout with the relevant case law and statutory material. The content of the majority of courses in land law is covered, making this an excellent text for use in the lecturehall, but also for independent study or revision where particular topics would benefit from additional explanation. A student can use the book to work through each chapter, stopping to reflect upon learning and understanding before proceeding, and thus building upon knowledge already acquired. Where appropriate, diagrams elucidate processes, showing how the concepts apply in practical scenarios.
This new edition has been rigorously updated to ensure that the approach taken provides additional academic insight, many more case references and further reading lists to guide independent research. In addition, the topic of fixtures and fittings is included for the first time.
