Book Description

Property law is concerned with a wider variety of rights, obligations and interests than most other areas of law, and can prove daunting to those studying the subject for the first time. Commonwealth Caribbean Property Law sets out in a clear and concise manner the central principles of the law of real property in the region, in order to guide students through this often complex core subject area. In this new edition, the book has been fully revised and updated to include important new case law from the various Caribbean jurisdictions and an expanded appendix of working documents.

With comprehensive coverage of the main topics studied by undergraduates, such as Leases, Co-Ownership, Restrictive Covenants, Easements, Mortgages, and Land Sale, this textbook is essential reading for LLB students in Caribbean universities and students on CAPE Law courses. The extensive coverage of land law from a Caribbean perspective and analysis of the substantive laws of several jurisdictions will also make this text an invaluable reference tool for practitioners.
