The Third Edition of the Encyclopedia of Real Estate Terms is the most COMPREHENSIVE reference work on real estate terminology.

The book has three main aims: (i) to provide a clear and precise explanation of the meaning of a particular word or phrase (although legal and technical explanations proliferate, every effort has been made to avoid, as far as possible, the jargon or the cumbersome phraseology that has grown up in this subject since the Middle Ages); (ii) to help the user find an answer to many of the questions that occur in real estate today (if not directly, then by reference to a number of other sources); and (iii) to point out where a problem might occur upon which, when required, further advice and counsel should be sought.

The Encyclopedia defines and explains in detail the meaning and significance of over 10,000 real estate terms (as well as related terms from contract, tort, insurance, accounting, economics, finance and banking).

It contains more than 15,000 citations (including over 5,700 cases and 1,900 statutory or code references). There are over 7,400 bibliographical references, many of which are referenced by page or paragraph number, enabling the User to go to the book or an online service to find further information. In addition, there are references to many useful web sites, such as real estate organization, government bodies, major reference works such as USPAP and the RICS 'Red Book', and much more.

The Encyclopedia of Real Estate Terms is an essential reference work for all professionals confronted with the complexities of the modern real estate world. It will prove invaluable to real estate investors, consultants, lawyers, accountants, managers as well as students.

This reference work is truly international in scope. It draws on material from the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and France. It also includes Latin terms and terms from the Civil law.
