This text is designed to provide a balanced approach to the exposition of land law as it stands after the enactment of the Trusts of Land and Appointment of Trustees Act 1996 and Land Registration Act of 1997, but it is also an attempt to see how land law might look in years to come. The traditional division between registered and unregistered land ceases to be tenable when all land has to be registered after any dealing.

As the opening passage of this book shows, the consequence of this is that unregistered land is, like the red squirrel, threatened with extinction. The work looks at how the two systems are designed to dovetail together.;Any new approach creates some rents in the traditional ordering and terminology of a subject, but a deliberate attempt has been made to limit the restructuring so that traditionalists will still feel comfortable with what emerges.

By dovetailing discussion of registered and unregistered land, the author presents a map of land law which offers to enable students to understand the realities of the subject without abandoning many of the concepts and structures with which teachers and practitioners will already be familiar.
