Newsletter: June 2005


This issue of the Selborne Chambers’ Newsletter focuses on three distinct aspects of the law of real property. Jonathan Ferris provides an overview of recent and impending developments in the law of compulsory purchase – a power increasingly used by local authorities and a potential growth area for litigation. Duncan Kynoch reviews the potential impact of Human Rights law in adverse possession cases, particularly in the light of the recent decision in Beaulane v Palmer and Philip Kremen highlights some of the difficulties that vendors and purchasers alike may encounter in establishing and conveying parking rights.
