Property and Real Estate Law

Authors Craig R. Carter and David R. Carter blend academic and practical perspectives in their discussion of the way in which interests in land are bought, sold, and mortgaged.

This resource is structured around a standard real estate transaction and is supported by the most recent case law and sources, which encourage further exploration of the development of the law. Several important topics addressed in this text are new to this edition, including the Planning Act, mortgage fraud, easements, and positive covenants. These principles and concepts are contextualized with practical tips based on the authors’ combined 37 years of practice.

With a focus that emphasizes both the learning and practising of real estate law, Craig and David Carter have produced a casebook that simplifies complex concepts and provides best practices that can be easily applied to real-world situations. This text aims to provide readers with not only an appreciation of the law, but also a solid grounding in the practical aspects of real estate, mortgage law, and mortgage remedies.

  • Real-world context demonstrating how various legal issues are dealt with by practitioners
