Estates in Land and Future Interests combines graphics, text boxes, and pedagogical techniques especially helpful to visual learners to teach the basics of estates and future interests, a particularly confusing subset of first-year property. One central graphic--a flow chart used to identify the state of the title after a particular conveyance--links various estates to the future interests that follow them. The complete flow chart appears on the inside back cover for easy reference. The text's step-by-step, process approach breaks up analytical tasks into smaller pieces, reducing the degree to which students get lost in the material. Written in clear, simple language, with short paragraphs and chapters, Estates in Land and Future Interests features an open, attractive design enhanced by graphics to make the material easier to understand. Students are given a variety of opportunities to actively engage the material with problem sets and answers, study questions, and practice exercises. A vocabulary appendix helps them quickly and easily review terms easily. An exact match to the coverage in Dukeminier and Krier's Property, Estates in Land and Future Interests is a perfect companion to Aspen's popular casebook.
The Fourth Edition features expanded explanations for the Study Questions throughout the book.
"Farms and Estates: A Conveyancing Handbook" is the only textbook dedicated to this subject. Written by one of the leading agricultural lawyers in the UK, it guides you through the complexities of advising on the sale and purchase of rural land - a process that frequently raises technical problems which differ greatly from standard conveyancing transactions such as dealing with unregistered land, livestock quotas, tenancy problems and the transfer of employees and contracts for plant and machinery. This new edition takes account of recent major legislative developments, including the Common Agricultural Policy which came into effect in May 2005, the Land Registration Act 2002, and Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000. Also included are Stamp Duty Land Tax and the Hunting Act 2004. "Farms and Estates: A Conveyancing Handbook" provides a practical explanation of the subject, highlighting what the professional adviser must look for and how a deal should be structured to avoid tax and other problems. It also includes 18 precedents.
