Out Of Print
This popular and indispensable book takes the reader through the main elements of land law in an easily understandable way. The fundamental principles and concepts are presented and explained in a systematic and logical way. Perrins clear approach clarifies the often mystifying and confusing specialist jargon associated with this area of law.

This book will be particularly helpful to the student new to land and property law,but can also be used as a refresher for more experienced students. It covers the main topics of most undergraduate courses, and is of relevance to students on planning and conveyancing courses.
