Modern Land Law is one of the most current and reliable textbooks available on land law today, offering a lively and thought-provoking account of a subject that remains at the heart of our legal system. Dispelling any apprehension about the subject's formidability from the outset, this compact textbook provides an absorbing and exact analysis of all the key legal principles relating to land. Written with students firmly in mind, a clear introduction to every chapter frames each topic in its wider context and corresponding chapter summaries help to consolidate learning and encourage reflection. This 10th edition has been thoroughly revised and updated to take into account key developments in the law including an updated chapter on registered title in the light of the recent Court of Appeal decision in Swift First v Chief Land Registrar and Goldharp v McLeod. There is an update on the Law Commission's recommendations on easements and covenants, including the 'Right to Light' as well as analysis of recent, often contradictory, decisions in case law relating to cohabitation.
