When a person transfers legal title to another the legal title is said to vest in the other person. This chapter considers the rules for the transfer of title (ownership) in property in relation to different types of property. The general principle is that unless the property has been transferred by the correct legal rules then the transfer fails; it is said to be imperfect. The chapter begins by briefly considering the legal rules in relation to validly transferring property to another person. It then deals with equitable rules which have developed to overcome the strict application of the legal rules of vesting.
