Written with the student in mind, Making Sense of Land Law is an ideal companion to the study of what can be an intricate and occasionally difficult area. The essential concepts are explained in a clear and engaging style, enlivened with question and answer debates and real examples, and underpinned throughout by the relevant case law and statutory material. Making Sense of Land Law makes a very engaging course text. It is also perfect for use as an additional aid to independent study or revision, where particular topics would benefit from additional explanation and understanding. This new edition has been comprehensively updated to feature the latest developments with the subject. Includes a new chapter on constructive and resulting trusts.
