Sackville & Neave Australian Property Law provides a comprehensive review of property law and material on the creation, transfer and enforceability of interests in real and personal property in all Australian jurisdictions.
The book retains the structure adopted in the ninth edition and incorporates various innovations, including an increased focus on the transactional context within which the substantive law operates. Chapter 1 deals with conceptual issues that underpin and define the ambit of property law. Later chapters examine four broad issues with which the law of property is concerned: the fragmentation of proprietary interests (Ch 2, 3 & 6); the acquisition and transfer of proprietary interests (Ch 4); and the enforceability of proprietary interests and related priority issues (Ch 4 & 5). The book also examines the rules regulating the creation and enforcement of particular interests in land, including leases, easements, restrictive covenants and mortgages.
Important recent appellate court cases and statutes covered include:
- Jea Holdings
