The Shorter Encyclopedia of Real Estate Terms defines and explains over 7,500 terms, supplemented by more than 1000 citations (cases, statutes and other authorities). 20,000 cross references, and over 400 bibliographical references. The book is unique in that it chronicles the meaning and significance of a particular term, and provides an explanation of the legal and practical significance of the entry. It is a comprehensive reference book on real estate - a dictionary, a thesaurus a and an Encyclopaedia , rolled into one.N

The Encyclopedia covers every aspect of real estate (law, economics, finance, insurance, investment, taxation, urban planning, appraisal/valuation and management) and is an essential reference guide for any investor, lawyer, consultant or real estate professional, as well as being particularly useful for students. The primary focus of the Shorter Encyclopaedia is terminology drawn from English and American real estate practice. However, it also contains Australian, Canadian, New Zealand, Scots Law, Civil Law and Latin terms.

The Appendices contain information on over 80 National and International Associations (including web addresses), a comprehensive Table of Measurements, a Table of Measurements of Length, Area and Volume (including Metric/Imperial Conversions); an explanation of the major Property Investment Formulae; and a list of Abbreviations and Acronyms.
