Winter Session 2014 lec > subject pages > real property
 
 
 
 

Real Property is concerned with the law relating to interests in land.  Such interests are binding not only between those who have entered into a contractual relationship, they can also be binding between others.  Examples include the mortgagor/mortgagee and landlord/tenant relationships and also the operation of easements and restrictive covenants between persons who own neighbouring blocks of land.

A major part of the course is devoted to priorities between competing interests in land.  It is possible for a number of persons to have such competing interests.  Common law rules and equitable principles are considered.  The operation of statutes such as the Real Property Act is seen to be fundamental.

The objective of the course is to give students an understanding of the law of Real Property.  Students are encouraged to develop problem-solving skills by applying the law to particular factual situations.
