Derived from the renowned multi-volume International Encyclopaedia of Laws, this practical analysis of the law of property and trusts in Ireland deals with the issues related to rights and interests in all kinds of property – immovable (or real) and movable (or personal) property; how property rights are acquired; different types of trusts; and the creation of security interests in property. Lawyers who handle transnational disputes and other matters concerning property will appreciate the explanation of specific terminology, application,and procedure. An introduction outlining the essential political and legal historical considerations which affected the development of Portuguese property law is followed by a discussion of the various types of property. Further analysis describes how interests and rights can be obtained and transferred in each type of property. The coverage includes the law relating to the transfer of land and the sale of goods; the different interests which can be created in both types of property; and how ownership or other interests can be acquired through the acquisition of possession and the passage of time, including the law on adverse possession, prescription and finding. Facts are presented in such a way that readers who are unfamiliar with specific terms and concepts in varying contexts will fully grasp their meaning and significance. The book includes ample references to recent legislation and cases, as well as to academic commentary. Its succinct yet scholarly nature, as well as the practical quality of the information it provides, make this book a valuable time-saving tool for any practitioner faced with a property- related matter. Lawyers representing parties with interests in Portugal will welcome this very useful guide, and academics and researchers will appreciate its value in the study of comparative property law.
