Bailment is common practice that occurs every day on a variety of scales. From valet parking to delivering oil rigs, knowledge of the legal relationship between the bailor and the bailee can be vital in protecting the interests of clients where possession of property changes, but ownership remains the same. Practice in this field is often complex due to tensions with Common Law doctrines of tort and contract, which can affect both the substantive rights of the parties and the remedies available to them. This book therefore, seeks to provide a clear, concise and practical insight in how to manage Bailment and includes the following topics:

  • The nature of bailment.
  • Bailment distinguished from other property transactions
  • Bailment distinguished from other causes of action
  • Title to sue in bailment
  • Duties of a bailor/rights of bailee
  • Duties of a bailee/rights of bailor
  • Reliance on contractual terms
  • Conflict of laws
  • Practice, procedure and remedies
Bailment includes relevant case law as well as commentary from a team of lawyers with significant experience of this topic. It is therefore, an authoritative reference for any commercial lawyer, or academic, with an interest in the modern legislation around Bailment.
