Possession, Relative Title, and Ownership in English Law

Luke Rostill

  • Provides a sustained analysis of two foundational principles of English property law: the principle of relative title and the principle that possession is a source of title
  • Examines several central concepts in the law of property, including possession and ownership
  • Advances new arguments in support of the claim that possession of land gives rise to a fee simple and traces the development of the law
  • Shows that the architecture of land law and the law of personal property are far more similar than many believe
