Prescription and limitation are exceptionally important in the practice of law; posing problems and raising problematic issues and questions in virtually every legal area. Questions of when rights or obligations are extinguished by negative prescription, fortified by positive prescription or barred by limitation are frequently difficult, and the terms of the Prescription & Limitation (Scotland) Act 1973, the statute which governs most of these questions, are often complex and sometimes obscure. The need therefore for a detailed examination of the law has been long overdue. Prescription and Limitation is the first book in over a century to explore this complex and expansive area of Scots law. Within the scheme of this consolidating text are the answers to numerous legal questions affecting such diverse areas such as contract, delict, conveyancing and property law. Throughout the work the author has examined a disparate subject, exploring many of the numerous legal measures and procedures on which prescription and limitation impact.
