Megarry & Wade provides comprehensive and authoritative coverage of all aspects of the contemporary law of real property as well as valuable information on the historical background of the law. First published in 1957, it is Sweet & Maxwell’s flagship frontlist title in this subject area – it is a clearly structured, comprehensive, and authoritative text that covers every aspect of the subject.

The book examines the conventions and principles of the subject in a way that is seldom replicated elsewhere. The text covers every element of the law of real property and offers a complete explanation of the law as it stands. The text itself is divided into clearly referenced and accessible chapters – each chapter comprehensively addresses a specific area of law and has been formulated for ease of navigation and the natural flow of information to the reader. The book introduces the reader to substantive areas of law before dealing with the complex issues which can arise in relation to priorities between competing interests. Basic principles and concepts are given a full explanation and applied in greater detail in a historical, contextual, and practical manner, enabling the reader to develop a firm grasp of the subject and its key issues. It covers a broad subject but is authoritative and frequently cited.
