This chapter discusses the following: the ways in which various kinds of fee simple estate may be created, transferred, and terminated; the new form of estate ownership – freehold ownership of ‘commonhold land’ – introduced by the Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Act 2002; and the rules (both at common law and in equity) under which covenants relating to land use may be enforced between owners of freehold estates.
