Land Law Tutor



In a market-based society, land must be freely tradable, but there must also be security for those who own it and those who have lesser rights in it, such as a right to walk across it. Many land law problems will involve not just two but three sets of competing interests: those of a buyer of the land, a seller of the land, and a third party who has some lesser interest in the land (e.g. a right to live there for life, or a loan secured against it).


Studying Land Law will help you a number of ways. Similar to other legal subjects Land Law enables students to approach problems and situations in a logical manner and provides a disciplined framework within which they can work.


In order to answer any problem question successfully it will depend upon accurate, comprehensive and logical analysis of how the facts of the question fit into those categories. There are Four key questions to ask in response to any land law problem: (You must always be prepared to answer them and to explain why the answers matter):

  1. Is the title to the land registered or unregistered?

  2. What interests may exist in the relevant land?

  3. Is each of the possible interests legal or equitable?

  4. Have any necessary steps been taken to protect each of the possible interests?


Students often have conflicting views as to how they feel towards the subject. Some students prefer its complexity where students can clearly identify areas of radical reform and find the module straightforward.


Although, in order to be a successful Land Law student a wide background knowledge of the area enables students to comprehend the inter-related issues better. Land law can be an accessible and enjoyable subject (everyone needs and uses land), and the historical element adds both important context and colour to the principles.
