Titles in the Complete series combine extracts from a wide range of primary materials with clear explanatory text to provide readers with a complete introductory resource. Tracing is a powerful means of locating and then recovering trust property. Property may change hands, change into another form of property, be mixed with other property and even increase in value, and yet it can still be recovered, as long it is still identifiable. This chapter discusses the definition of tracing; common law tracing; equitable tracing; tracing against volunteers and bona fide purchasers for value; tracing into a mixed fund including bank accounts; and the principle that the wrongdoer spends his own money first.
