Law and the Built Environment
Article Type: Recent publications From: Structural Survey, Volume 29, Issue 3
Written by Douglas Wood, Paul Chynoweth, Julie Adshead and Jim Mason, Law and the Built Environment is a core textbook for all students undertaking compulsory law modules on construction, real estate and property management programmes. The publishers suggest that there is currently no other single, generally accepted textbook serving students undertaking compulsory law modules on vocational programmes in the built environment. This text provides an accessible introduction to the many areas of law studied by aspiring built environment professionals. Written by a team of lecturers with many years’ teaching experience in these areas, key principles of English law are placed in their relevant professional context and clearly explained in exactly the right level of detail for success in the modules studied. The book also focuses in greater depth on some specialist areas of built environment professional practice, including construction contracts, health and safety, rent review, dilapidations, and lease renewals.
Published by Wiley-Blackwell at £24.99 in paperback (ISBN: 978-1-4051-9760-1).
