Course-focused and comprehensive, Textbook on Land Law continues to provide an interesting, accessible, and original account of contemporary land law. The nineteenth edition builds upon the book’s unique and straightforward approach. Using a fictional case study to illustrate the key principles of land law, the chapters demonstrate the real-life applications of a subject students often find very abstract, while clarifying complex areas and common points of confusion. The book consists of seven parts. Part I provides an introduction to estates and interests in land. Part II looks at the acquisition of estates in land. Part III considers the two legal estates of freehold and leasehold, and in particular looks in detail at the obligations of landlord and tenant, their enforcement, and remedies for their breach. Part IV looks at co-ownership, trusts, and proprietary estoppel. Part V considers licences and provides a summary of the law relating to the family home. The next part considers third party rights, including easements, freehold covenants and mortgages, and the final part concludes with a consideration of the definition of ‘land’.
