Written with both legal students and practitioners in mind, this highly specialist book is recognised as the definitive guide to Irish land law. Comprehensive and clear, this book not only covers the subject of Irish land law with depth and detail, it also offers invaluable information on equity, trusts and succession. The fifth edition of Irish Land Law includes coverage of changes to the controversial law of prescription introduced by the Civil Law (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 2011 and the continuing controversy over lenders' ability to enforce mortgages which stems from a series of judicial decisions interpreting the Land and Conveyancing Law Reform Act 2009. Also included are developments relating to easements, trusts of land, mortgages and judgment mortgages. Previous edition ISBN: 9781847660817
