The Boundaries of Australian Property Law offers a unique perspective on real property law in Australia. As the overwhelming majority of land interests in Australia now fall under the Torrens title system, this book's particular focus on the development and operation of the Torrens system in Australia is both timely and welcome.

Addressing the prescribed Priestly 11 requirements for a property law subject in Australia, this informative and academically rigorous book includes carefully selected statutory material and case law from all Australian jurisdictions, as well as the United Kingdom.

The general law system is also discussed and referred to where necessary, to give context and depth to the analysis of real property law. Written by prominent real property law academics from law schools around Australia, and edited by Hossein Esmaeili and Brendan Grigg, this text is a modern and much-needed addition to real property law literature.
