The Pallant v Morgan equity: article and podcast

October 19, 2012

My article, ‘The Pallant v Morgan equity” has just been published ([2012] Conveyancer and Property Lawyer 379). It explains the nature of the equity and the contexts in which it is frequently invoked. The article considers the debate as to the nature of the equity and the need to balance commercial certainty, on the one hand, with the need to give effect to agreements that were intended to be taken seriously, on the other.

Steven Gallagher and I have started a Property Law Podcast series on the CUHK iTunes U site. I have done a brief podcast about the Pallant v Morgan equity for this series.
