Product description

Sackville & Neave Australian Property Law provides a comprehensive review of property law covering the creation, transfer and enforceability of interests in real and personal property in all Australian jurisdictions. The conceptual issues that underpin and define the ambit of property law are clearly explained in the opening chapters to provide a sound foundation for understanding this complex area. The book then examines four broad issues with which the law of property is concerned: the fragmentation of proprietary interests, the acquisition and transfer of proprietary interests, the enforceability of proprietary interests, and related priority issues. The rules regulating the creation and enforcement of particular interests in land, including leases, easements, restrictive covenants and mortgages, are also analysed and explained.
