For close to 25 years, Australian Real Property Law has been a preeminent land law text for students within university property law units and the practising profession. The 6th edition continues to provide coverage of all states and territories and remains a first point of reference for any person with a land law problem.

This latest edition continues the chapter order of earlier editions, but with extensive restructuring of areas such as defeasible transactions, easements, dispositions, and mortgages. All chapters have been edited to highlight new case-law authority, legislative change, and where appropriate, secondary authority such as the resources associated with the introduction of electronic conveyancing and the Australian Law Reform Commission Report on Native Title, Connection to Country.

Some new and significant cases highlighted in this edition include:

  • Cassegrain v Gerard Cassegrain & Co Pty Ltd ((High Court) co-ownership and Torrens indefeasibility);
  • Bondi Beach Astra Retirement Village Pty Ltd v Gora ((NSW Court of Appeal) restraints on alienation);
  • Barlin investments Pty Ltd v Westpac Banking Corporation ((NSW Supreme Court) Torrens priorities and s 43A of the Real Property Act 1900 (NSW));
  • Segal v Barel ((NSW Court of Appeal) co-ownership);
  • State of Queensland v Congoo ((High Court) native title);
  • Akiba v Commonwealth of Australia ((High Court) native title);
  • Aboriginal Land Council v Minister Administering the Crown Lands Act (Newcastle Post office claim) ((NSW Supreme Court) use or occupation of Crown lands); and
  • Korda v Australian Executor Trustees (SA) Ltd (2015) 89 ALJR 340 ((High Court) creation of express trusts).

The text is complemented by the companion text Australian Property Law, Cases and Materials.
