Course-focused and comprehensive, the Textbook on series provide an accessible overview of the key areas on the law curriculum. This chapter introduces Trant Way, a road in the fictitious town of Mousehole in the county of Stilton, which will be used throughout the book to illustrate the application of land law rules in practical situations. It also describes one of the houses along the road, Trant House, which in the story presented here has just been put up for sale. It follows a prospective purchaser who is viewing Trant House to explain what is meant by ‘owning land’. The discussions also cover topics such as tenure, estates in land (freehold and leasehold estates), and the two modern legal estates.
