Book Description

The Glossary of Property Terms has helped define the property industry since its first publication in 1989. This second edition remains the glossary for all in the landed professions and related endeavours. It has been expanded to include recent additions to the property vocabulary and existing terms have been revised and amended where necessary to reflect correct common useage. This highly practical guide contains some 3,200 terms and definitions as well as nearly 760 abbreviations. This fully updated edition reveals the meanings and nuances of many terms recently introduced into the vocabulary of property. In addition, terms which have a more historic significance have been retained, but amended as appropriate. A must have book for property professionals and students alike.
