Review of a previous edition:
'The new edition maintains the exemplary standards set by the earlier ones and is by any criteria an excellent book... Edward Burn is to be contratulated on the splendid new edition. All those who have to teach land law are in his debt.' - Conveyancer and Property Lawyer
For over forty years Maudsley & Burn's Land Law Cases & Materials has been an invaluable reference work for land law students and practitioners, bringing together in one authoritative volume the most important readings in land law: cases, stattues, articles and other materials.
The ninth edition incorporating all the most up-to-date case law, statutory changes and proposals for reform, incluidng the Law Commission's various proposals relating to leases, cohabitation, easements and coventants. There is increased coverage of constructive trusts, proprietory estoppel, commonhold and human rights, and additional commentary to guide the reader through the most complex subjects. A restructuring of the chapters and a new layout has made this traditional casebook even easier to use, while pertinent questions and extensive references provoke academic discussion and encourage further study.
