Mapping the Law

This chapter begins in the tenements of ancient Rome to show how medieval and later lawyers tackled the problem of the enrichment of a landlord which was liable to happen if, on the termination of the lease, a tenant was not allowed to remove the improvements which he had made to the landlord's property. It then brings the story right up to the present day with an examination of recent changes in practice and in the Dutch Civil Code, which have sought to meet the legitimate claims of tenants without forcing landlords to pay for improvements which they do not want.

Keywords:   Roman law, landlord, tenant, Dutch Civil Code, property improvements, unjust enrichment
