Property II examines principles of Land Law and the Law of Trusts. Land Law is taught in the first term and Trusts in the second term. The Land Law component of Property II is designed to introduce students to the fundamental principles of the law of real property (i.e. land). The course examines the general principles governing the ownership and occupation of land, including concepts of estates and interests, legal and equitable ownership (trusts of land, including co-ownership and modes of transfer) and title registration. It also considers the law governing specific interests in land (licences, proprietary estoppel, easements, covenants and mortgages).
The Trusts component of the course focuses on general principles of trusts law and examines the circumstances in which trusts arise, the obligations of trustees, and the remedies available to beneficiaries when these obligations are breached. It also considers the nature and classification of trusts, including the applications and classifications of resulting and constructive trusts, and how the law of trusts relates to and impacts on the law of contract, wrongs and unjust enrichment.
