Book summary: Now in its second edition, the Property Law Handbook is the ideal companion to guide you through the intracies of the conveyancing process. Drawing on the authors' considerable experience of legal practice, and suitable for use on courses with either a residential or a commercial conveyancing focus, the book combines lively and accessible explanations of often complex processes with highly practical guidance on how to approach each stage of a conveyancing transaction in practice. The pragmatic nature of the book is enhanced through the use of realistic case studies throughout, fully supported by online sample documentation, introducing the reader to the forms and documents likely to be encountered in practice and encouraging students to develop the essential practical skills they will rely on throughout their legal career.
Diagrams, flowcharts and examples are used throughout to clearly highlight and explain complex legal processes while summaries of key points, located at the end of chapters, provide a useful checklist of the salient points covered in each topic. Professional conduct points are highlighted throughout equipping the reader with a sound understanding of the common pitfalls which should be avoided in practice. Additional study support is also provided by self-test and short revision questions, located at the end of chapters and clearly divided into residential and commercial conveyancing, offering the reader the perfect opportunity to test their understanding of a topic and identify any gaps in learning where further study is required. Lists of further reading and links to other sources of further information available online is also contained at the end of chapters enabling further independent exploration of the subject area.
Online Resource Centre
The Property Law Handbook is accompanied by a freely accessible Online Resource Centre which offers invaluable additional study and teaching support for both students and lecturers unrivalled by any other book in this subject area. For students, realistic problem scenarios, accompanied by helpful tips and guidance, provide a further opportunity to put their knowledge into practice and develop the skills necessary to approach examination questions with confidence. An extensive bank of sample documentation, linked to the case studies contained in the book, is also available and highlights those forms and documents which would appear on a typical solicitors' file in practice. Designed to highlight how the various stages of a conveyancing transaction fit together, two fully interactive timelines, spanning both residential and commercial conveyancing, are available online. Students can also access an additional online chapter on commonhold.
For lecturers, a test bank of multiple choice questions is available and can be used to test students' understanding of topics and track their progress throughout the course. The test bank can be uploaded to an institution's own virtual learning environment and can be fully customized to match the structure and content of individual courses enabling lecturers to offer their students a truly blended learning package. The diagrams contained in the book are also available to download for use in lecture slides or handouts.
