The authors analyse court decisions on topics such as tenements; real burdens (including their variation by the Lands Tribunal); pre-emptions; servitudes; competition of title; land registration; leases; standard securities; family property; professional negligence; boundaries and positive prescription; and insolvency law. Particular attention is given to contractual liability arising out of conveyances; tacit relocation in respect of leases; ancillary rights implied into servitudes; servitudes of necessity for repairs; assignation of standard securities; the sufficiency or insufficiency of descriptions of common areas; and judicial rectification and the loss of rights. An update by Alan Barr on property taxes has land and buildings transaction tax as its particular focus. The book concludes with a detailed account of the circumstances in which registration is required in the new Register of Persons Holding a Controlled Interest in Land.

Written in a clear, direct style, Conveyancing 2021 is an essential guide for practitioners to this fast-moving area of law.
