Product description

Fisher & Lightwood's has been the most detailed and comprehensive book on mortgages. It was first published in 1856 and has gone into 13 editions in England. The first Australian edition was published in 1995 and has become the leading Australian work on mortgages. It not only takes from the English edition all the comprehensive work but also thoroughly considers mortgages under the torrens system and securities that exist over various unique types of property that exist in Australia.

The third Australian edition now comes 8 years after the previous edition. It not only deals with new legislation such as the Personal Property Securities Law, but also includes examination of the many cases decided in the last eight years including the significant number on forged mortgages under the Torrens System.


• Up to date case law analysis 
• Essential text on Australian mortgages and securities 
• The text is written in plain English, explaining difficult legal concepts clearly.
