Conveyancing-Principles & Practice provides a succinct understanding of the historical and philosophical background of land law and conveyancing in Kenya, a thorough grasp of the legal framework and a simplified concise exposition of the processes and formalities that precede the legal transfer of land. It combines a technical understanding of complex legal phenomenon with some critical awareness of the broader values and preferences which inform the law. The book is alive to the fact that land law and conveyancing impinge upon a vast area of social ordering and expectations, and exert a fundamental influence upon the lifestyles of ordinary people. Most importantly, Conveyancing-Principles and Practice is designed along the new Advocates Training Programme as a core text for students of conveyancing, conveyancers, legal practitioners, real estate investors, estate agents, commercial and banking institutions, auctioneers, Government departments and the citizenry.
