Conveyancing 2015, the seventeenth volume in the series, offers a full and authoritative account of conveyancing law and practice in Scotland during the year 2015.
As usual, the coverage includes:
• all reported cases
• all statutory developments
• much other material of interest to practitioners
The authors analyse court decisions on topics as diverse as positive prescription; interpretation of contracts; options; servitudes; the variation and discharge of real burdens; land registration; encroachment; the enforcement of common charges by factors; irritancy of leases; dilapidations; rent review; tenancy deposit schemes; fraud; and the pre-action requirements for the calling-up of standard securities.
Particular attention is given to real burdens in respect of amenity areas, and the documentation needed for retentions at settlement.
There is detailed consideration of the Legal Writings (Counterparts and Delivery) (Scotland) Act 2015, and of the increasingly complex pattern of property taxes in Scotland.
Other legislation, or potential legislation, covered includes the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015, the Land Reform (Scotland) Bill, and the Private Housing (Tenancies) (Scotland) Bill.
Written in a clear, direct style, Conveyancing 2015 is an essential guide for practitioners to this fast-moving area of law.
