The Q&A series offer the best preparation for tackling exam questions. Each book includes typical questions, bullet-pointed answer plans and suggested answers, author commentary and illustrative diagrams and flowcharts. This chapter considers issues related to the acquisition of title on death. Some land law courses consider the three basic ways in which an estate in land can be acquired: by a disposition inter vivos, by adverse possession, and by will. The last method often involves a study of the formal requirements for a valid will. A discussion of the formal requirements for a will is needed if the question itself suggests that such requirements might not have been complied with, as is evidently the case with both the questions in the chapter.
