Conveyancing 2008, the tenth volume in the series, offers a full and authoritative account of conveyancing law and practice in Scotland during 2008.
The coverage includes:
- all reported cases
- all statutory developments
- other material of interest to practitioners
The authors analyse court decisions on topics as diverse as the statutory test of interest to enforce real burdens; whether signage is among the servitudes recognised in Scots law; the proper meaning of the possession “as of right” needed to establish a servitude by prescription; the variation and discharge of title conditions; the legal effect of reserving a new house; the problem of unsatisfactory coal mining reports; irritancy of leases; leases to partnerships; the interpretation of break options; tenants-at-will; a heritable creditor’s duty to obtain the best price on sale following a debtor’s default; survivorship clauses; judicial rectification; and breach of warrandice. Particular attention is given to PMP Plus v Keeper of the Registers of Scotland, a decision which calls into question the way in which developers deal with common parts, and the manner in which common parts are entered on the Land Register.
