This new edition of the popular work, written by a team of specialists, takes into account developments in law and practice, gives targeted coverage of rights of light, combining an explanation of legal framework with practical commentary about procedure and remedies, and contains contributions from surveyors on measuring and valuing loss of light.

Rights of light are a distinctive and complex branch of the law of easements. When advising on property developments it is essential that practitioners have a clear grasp of the legal principles and their practical application.
