This book is a comprehensive survey of modern housing law,an area of growing importance which is becoming increasingly liable to change as a result of statutory intervention. The book takes a wide approach to housing law and includes, for instance, a look at owner-occupiers and their financial problems as well as covering inadequate mortgage valuation reports from surveyors. It includes a large amount of cases and materials, and these are set in the context of substantial comment and analysis.
