The Law of Proprietary Estoppel

Second Edition

Ben McFarlane

  • Clear structure allows practitioners and others to isolate the key points in a case and quickly find the relevant case-law
  • Comprehensive resource assists practitioners and others by thorough treatment of the relevant case-law and coverage of points that have yet to come up in litigation
  • Discussion of related doctrines allows practitioners and others to know when it may be useful to rely on other doctrines alongside or instead of proprietary estoppel
  • Examination of academic commentary provides important context to the discussion of the case-law
