This title brings together a team of leading authorities on land law to analyse the key debates and policy issues in this area of the law, with the main chapters addressing proprietary and non- proprietary rights, registration, easements, leases, co-ownership and trusts, mortgages and land law and human rights.

Many of the policies and assumptions which underlie land law have immense significance in economic, social and emotional terms upon individuals lives. This book set out to analyse the current tensions within land law, such as the conflicting needs for certainty and fairness, and the difficult balance which has to be drawn between protecting existing property rights and simplifying conveyancing to ensure the easy transfer of land. Particular attention is paid to the likely impact of the Human Rights Act.

The book is aimed at students, practitioners and others seeking an understanding of the key issues and debates surrounding this area of the law.
