Now in its 9th Edition, Megarry and Wade: The Law of Real Property provides a comprehensive and authoritative coverage of all aspects of the contemporary law of real property.

It covers the whole of the English law of real property, together with related subjects such as conveyancing, leases and wills and intestacy, in a single volume. Due to the book’s long history and its association with Sir Robert Megarry V.C. and Sir William Wade, it is viewed as a highly authoritative source of English Land Law.

Key features:

  • Places the development of land law in a historical context and sets out clearly the legal framework for real property, enabling practitioners to put the current law in context
  • Provides a comprehensive examination of the rights and liabilities of landowners, setting out the legal requirements, explaining the technical issues and providing authoritative interpretation of statutes and measured analysis of relevant decisions
  • Deals with the complex issues that can arise in relation to priorities between competing interests, highlighting potential issues and the means to resolve them
  • Includes extensive case referencing, showing how the law can be applied in practice
  • Key developments in land registration including Gold Harp Properties Ltd v MacLeod [2014] EWCA Civ 1084, Swift 1st Ltd v Chief Land Registrar [2015] EWCA Civ 330 and NRAM Ltd v Evans [2017] EWCA Civ 1013
  • Coverage of the Law Commission’s recommendations for the updating of the Land Registration Act 2002
  • Key developments in the law relating to adverse possession including Zarb v Parry [2011] EWCA Civ 1306, Best v Chief Land Registrar [2014] EWHC 1370 (Admin), and Smith v Molyneax [2016] UKPC 35
