Land Law

Second Edition

Chris Bevan

  • The author's clear, engaging writing style speaks directly to students and anticipates their questions, enabling the book to present a sophisticated analysis of the law that does not overwhelm or confuse readers
  • 90 carefully-constructed diagrams and flowcharts set out the material in intuitive visual formats, providing bird's eye views of topics and concepts and thereby aiding understanding
  • Key cases for each topic are succinctly summarized in a 'facts', 'legal issue', 'judgment' format to provide students with a clear sense of why they are important and to pique their interest, providing a springboard for independent reading of the primary sources
  • 'Future directions' sections at the end of each chapter epitomize the book's forward-looking, horizon-scanning perspective, proving to students that land law remains active and relevant, and encouraging a critical approach to the status quo
  • The book provides focused yet comprehensive coverage, closely mapped to LLB courses and aligned with subject trends and priorities - unregistered land is covered in appropriate brevity, and a full chapter is devoted to the increasingly-important topic of land law and human rights

New to this Edition:

  • Analysis of fascinating new cases from the last 24 months including Baker v Craggs (2018) on overreaching; Regency Villas Title Ltd v Diamond Resorts (Europe) Ltd (2018) on recreational easements; Thorpe v Frank (2019); Rashid v Nasrullah (2019) on adverse possession and a coverage of the wealth of new estoppel decisions
  • Discussion of the Law Commission report No. 380, Updating the Land Registration Act 2002 (2018) and new legislation: Tenant Fees Act 2019 and Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation) Act 2018
  • New, separate and dedicated chapters on licences, proprietary estoppel and leasehold covenants to help students unpick and distinguish key topics and to align the text with undergraduate land law course design
  • Additional and improved figures and flowcharts to aid students' grasp and understanding of more complex material
