Description

Law and the Built Environment is a core textbook for all students undertaking compulsory law modules on construction, real estate and property management programmes. This single 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.

It provides an essential resource for students studying for qualifications leading to professional membership of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) or the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB). It caters primarily for students studying these subjects at bachelor's degree level, but will also be suitable for students on programmes at HNC and HND levels, as well as those undertaking professional examinations. It will also provide introductory reading for students undertaking master's level programmes, and particularly for the increasing numbers of graduates from other disciplines who are now studying on RICS-accredited master's degree conversion programmes.
