Product description

This important book introduces the conceptual framework of interests in real and personal property. Carefully selected case and legislation extracts from across Australian jurisdictions are discussed in detail and relevant principles highlighted. The commentary evaluates the area of law, the status and effect of important decisions, and subsequent judicial and legislative developments. References to further secondary materials are provided. Each chapter contains review questions and answer guides, outlining how to approach questions and apply relevant case law and legislation.

The fifth edition has been fully revised and updated throughout to incorporate relevant recent developments in case law and legislation. New discussion on electronic conveyancing covers repudiation of a digital signature, priority notices and the decision in Astell v ACT (2016) on damages for fraud. New case extracts and commentary include: Northern Territory v Griffith (2019) (assessment of compensation for extinguishment of native title rights); Pipikos v Trayans (2018) (part performance); Boensch v Pascoe (2019) (caveats); Deguisa v Lynn (2019) (obligation of Torrens land purchasers to search other titles as to whether land subject to building scheme).
