Abstract

Summarises the key proposals suggested by the Northern Ireland Law Commission's project to reform and modernise land law and conveyancing in the jurisdiction, covering the abolition of feudal tenure, co-ownership, trusts of land and overreaching, mortgages and adverse possession. Mentions the influence of the particular historical evolution of Northern Irish land law on the Commission's emphasis upon finding local solutions rather than assimilating with the laws of neighbouring jurisdictions.
