  • The History of the Law of Landlord and Tenant in England and Wales

    Who has not been a landlord or a tenant? It is one of the most common legal relationships between people, and has been since the medieval period. But there is very little academic interest in the law of landlord and tenant. Nobody before has attempted to write its history.


    This book shows how the rules on each point of importance have developed. Sometimes it demonstrates how a wrong turn has been taken, or an important principle forgotten. But its practical use is to provide the material for understanding the old cases, and to put those cases in their proper context; for it is hard for any lawyer, advising on a doubtful point, to say where exactly we are now, without a thorough understanding of what the law once was and how and when it might have changed.

  • Possession of Land

    Nothing is more important in English land law than 'possession'. It is the foundation of all title, rights and remedies. But what exactly is it, and why does it still matter? This book, first published in 2006, is about the meaning, significance and practical effect of the concept of possession in contemporary land law. It explains the different meanings of possession, the relationship between possession and title, and the ways in which the common law and equity do, and do not, protect possession. The rights and remedies of freeholders, tenants and mortgage lenders, between themselves and against third parties, are all to some extent dependent on questions of status and possession. This book shows how. It is designed to provide an understanding of the basic principles for the student, and answers to difficult, real problems for the practitioner.

  • Civil Fraud : Law, Practice & Procedure

    Civil Fraud: Law, Practice & Procedure is designed to be the primary port of call for all practitioners conducting a civil fraud case. It deals with the subject in a comprehensive manner, combining in-depth legal analysis with a solidly practical approach.

    The authors focus throughout on the real-life situations which litigants in this area regularly encounter and offer effective guidance on the complex practical and procedural issues which can arise.

    The book starts with an examination of common factual and legal scenarios in a fraud case, which can be difficult to navigate even for the most experienced litigators. The remainder of the text develops the legal, practical and procedural issues flowing from such scenarios.

    The authors, drawing on a wealth of experience in litigating fraud claims, bring together the disparate areas of the law that fall under the label “fraud”, from the substantive causes of action – common law, restitutionary and equitable claims and claims arising under statute – through to remedies. It provides a full and comprehensible treatmentof the myriad procedural swords and shields which can be used in fraud litigation, including freezing orders, proprietary and other injunctions, search orders, receivership, ancillary orders and the increasingly-used contempt jurisdiction.

    The book also considers the key international aspects of civil fraud litigation. This is a primary ‘single source’ point of reference which avoids the need to navigate a whole series of texts in a field where practitioners often work under considerable time pressure.

    Civil Fraud: Law, Practice & Procedure works as a road map to take the practitioner from the moment of initial instructions through to a completed legal and practical analysis, whether at the various interlocutory stages, or at trial.
