A Practitioner's Guide to the Property Law Act 2007, second edition, covers a diverse range of subjects in relation to both real property and personal property. This title provides commentary on provisions relating to deeds, the sale and purchase of real property, covenants relating to land, leases, and mortgages, as well as assignments of choses in action, powers of attorney, and partition of land and division of chattels. In addition, the Act replaces the Contracts Enforcement Act 1956 in relation to the requirements for writing in contracts dealing with land and guarantees. The Act also empowers a court to grant relief where there is a need to enter neighbouring land, and in relation to matters involving wrongly placed structures, landlocked land, trees and unauthorised improvements on land, and dispositions that prejudice creditors.
