Housing Law Casebook

Nic Madge

Housing law grows ever more complex. New legislation and the growing number of reported cases - both at first instance and on appeal - increase the need for barristers, solicitors, advice workers and housing managers to find relevant cases quickly and easily. The Housing Law Casebook meets that need and is now in its third edition. With its origins in Legal Action's monthly series "Recent Developments in Housing Law" the Housing Law Casebook's summaries of all important cases make it an essential reference book.
