The Authoritative Property Law Dictionary

The Encyclopedia of Real Estate Terms is now in its Third Edition. This authoritative 1,536-page encyclopedia has three main aims: (1) To provide a clear and precise definition and meaning for a term or phrase, with multiple cross references. (2) To help the user find answers for many of the questions that occur in real estate today. If not directly, then by reference to a considerable number of other major sources. (3) To point out where a problem might occur upon which, when required, further advice and counsel should be sought.

THE Encyclopedias on Real Estate Terminology — in Print and ONLINE

The primary focus of these encyclopedias is American and English real estate practice. However, they are truly INTERNATIONAL in scope with real estate information from Australia, Canada and New Zealand. Also there are words and phrases from Scots Law and Civil Law and explanations of Latin phrases. All of these are supplemented by extensive resources (citation & bibliographical references) to aid further research.
Also, the Third Edition has French Real Estate Terms and Phrases. These are explained in English, with multiple references to the Civil Code and detailed book references. Thus, these works transcend any mere glossary.
