Garrow and Fenton’s Law of Personal Property in New Zealand, Seventh Edition is an authoritative guide on the law relating to personal property in New Zealand. The two-volume Seventh Edition enlarges the role of previous editions, reviewing recent developments in a wholly modern context. This highly regarded work provides in-depth coverage of personal property securities as well as all other types of personal property.
Volume 1 provides complete coverage of all types of personal property. Specifically it covers ownership of goods or tangible things, fixtures, gifts, bailment, liens, ships (including maritime liens), choses in action, and special forms of choses in action and incorporeal property. It also includes an overview of personal property securities.
Volume 2 contains detailed treatment of the personal property securities regime in New Zealand. This includes explanation and analysis of key concepts, such as security interests, security agreements, attachment, perfection, priority rules, and processed or commingled goods. It also provides commentary and guidance in relation to the Personal Property Securities Act 1999 (and the Personal Property Securities Register) as well as the Credit Contracts and Consumer Finance Act 2003.
