Ziff’s Principles of Property Law
Eran Kaplinsky, Malcolm Lavoie, and Jane Thomson
Ziff’s Principles of Property Law provides an overview of the law of real and personal property as found in the common law jurisdictions of Canada. Starting with an examination of the meaning of property, the justifications for private entitlements, and the history and social importance of the idea of property, the text presents the foundations upon which the elaborate structure of property law doctrine has been built. The topics covered include boundaries, possession, estates, Indigenous property interests, equitable interests, leases, licences, bailments, shared property rights, servitudes, security interests, and land registration.
