BU5032: PROPERTY LAW AND INSTITUTIONS (2022-2023)

Last modified: 18 Oct 2022 16:40


Course Overview

This module aims to examine the legal and professional environment of property.  The module introduces key concepts from property law to explain the framework within which property can be held, used and traded. Planning law and policy is considered as part of the regulatory system through which land use and development are promoted and/or controlled.

The course focuses on Scots law and institutions, but students have the opportunity, where appropriate, to draw upon their own comparative perspectives.

This course covers the legal basis of land tenure; land registration; property ownership; landlord and tenant relationships; obligations and restrictions, and planning.
