This ready reference book is written by two highly experienced mortgage law practitioners and guides the busy solicitor, barrister and in-house counsel through the essential elements of real property mortgage law in Australia.

The emphasis in the text is on how to approach real problems in the depth required to deal with the vast majority of cases while providing valuable guidance for further enquiry for more rare factual scenarios.

Topics that dominate mortgage enforcement, such as statutory unjustness defences and External Dispute Resolution complaints are given extensive treatment.
