Since its first publication in 1975, John Murdoch’s Law of Estate Agency has been the leading work on this important subject. This new fifth edition offers authoritative guidance on all recent legal developments, both legislative and in the courts, of concern to practising estate agents.

Judicial decisions on such matters as commission claims and liability for misdescription are of great concern to practitioners, as is the increasing tendency of clients to defend an action for fees by claiming that the agent’s terms of business contravene consumer protection rules inspired by the EU. These developments, and many more, are given expert coverage.
