Mapping the Law

Jeffrey Hackney

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on the law of leases and the boundary between obligations and property. Starting from the modern law on a tenant's denial of his landlord's title, it uncovers two distinct strands in the medieval law which are often confused. It then shows how a supposed analogy with denial of rent was used to help rationalize the law of conversion in Isaack v Clark.

Keywords:   law of leases, property, obligations, tenant, landlord, Isaack v Clark
