Australian Property Law: Cases and Materials, 5th Edition remains a comprehensive collection of statutes, cases and reference material on Australian real and personal property with notes and questions to provoke fuller understanding and matters for reconsideration.

The work is again divided into five parts covering the meaning of property law, title, dealings in land and goods, interaction of property co-holders and neighbourhood reconciliation.

This casebook is designed as an independent work but may be used as a complementary volume to the sixth edition of Australian Real Property Law which is also divided into the same five parts and is an exposition of much of the law represented by the materials in this work.

Australian material is emphasised in this book, including the place of all interests under the Torrens system, analysis of detailed statutory provisions and consideration of the legal response to the issues of an urbanised multi-cultural society where land is very expensive.

The material offers flexibility for course design to concentrate on land title, dealings and interests or to contrast rights in land, goods and other personal property or to adopt a social emphasis such as the provision of housing through strata and community title, tenancies and other forms of rights to accommodation.

This fifth edition extends the examination of personal property to priority between holders of personal property security interests under a new statutory regime, passing of property under a contract for the sale of goods, co-ownership of goods and bailments.

New developments highlighted include the impact of indefeasibility upon subsidiary interests in a transaction, duties on buyers and mortgagees to discover identity fraud, native title and commercial interests, the property effects of land contracts, means of terminating co-ownership, continuation of tenancies after domestic violence and long-term occupation in caravan parks.
