This edition continues the approach of previous editions in tracing the developments of land law from its English origins, while also emphasising the uniquely Australian aspects of land law. These aspects include particularly Torrens title, strata title, Crown lands, and Indigenous land issues.
All chapters have been completely revised to take into account recent case law and statutory developments. Areas of significant change include co-ownership, leases, easements, covenants, mortgages, adverse possession, Torrens title, Crown lands, and native title.
The book is written both for students seeking a structured and accessible approach to land law, and for practitioners and researchers looking for detailed coverage.
Recent judicial mention:
Stenberg v Lechowics  NSWSC 926 per Macready AJ
“61 The logic extends to mortgages, as Butt in Land Law, 6th Edition, Law Book Co at  points out: while one co-owner may also grant a mortgage over his or her share, he or she cannot bind the interest of any other co-owner”.
