""Environmental considerations have become a key feature of commercial property transactions. This is the first book to provide the practitioner with an easily digestible exposition of the law and its practical implications. Written by a leading practitioner in the field, it provides a clear account of environmental regulation in Scotland within the chronology of a commercial transaction.In an area of complex regulation, the structure of the book will allow the practitioner to gain an understanding of the context in which environmental considerations arise. At the same time, it provides comprehensive coverage of the areas of environmental regulation, such as contaminated land, water pollution and atmospheric emissions. Particularly useful features include an analysis of 'core' contracts, styles and forms, and the flagging up of potential pitfalls throughout.""
