The only practitioner's guide to the law of property damage, this book will be useful for anyone practicing in property damage claims. The authors provide comprehensive, up-to-date analysis of the legal principles and practical concerns in fire, gas, natural hazards, escape of water, subsidence, party walls and pollution claims and excellent, learned examination of claims under the Defective Premises Act and the Consumer Protection Act.

The book cements its unique utility by analysing, over three additional and separate chapters, the general principles of contract law, tortious liability and insurance law as they relate and are relevant to property damage claims. This allows practitioners, judges, academics and students to easily and efficiently come to grips with the idiosyncrasies of property damage law but also to understand how the general principles of contract, tort and insurance law relate and interact with property damage claims. Written as a handbook for practitioners, it also offers practical, user-friendly guidance for conducting property damage litigation.
