The third edition of An Introduction to Property Law in Australia is updated throughout to take account of new developments in all areas of property law, legislation, case law, and academic opinion. It contains an entirely new chapter on the Personal Property Securities Act, which commenced in 2012.
The coverage remains comprehensive, including such diverse branches of property law as company shares, domestic partnerships, intellectual property, native title, natural resources, and succession on death. It deals with all the various sources of property rights from adverse possession to unjust enrichment. Naturally, all the essentials are covered, starting with the meaning of property and moving through the full range of property concepts to finish with a full and lucid account of the Torrens system of land registration.
An Introduction to Property Law in Australia was originally designed to help the reader gain a deeper understanding of property law by explaining (in plain language) the analytical framework of the subject. The third edition stays true to that aim, with a clear, friendly style and broad coverage of almost every aspect of real and personal property.
