Transfer of property


Transfer of Property is the most difficult subject, next only to jurisprudence. The reason is that it deals with certain doctrines having their Origin in the Common Law of England, some totally alien to the Indian Concepts. The Transfer of Property Act 1882, was amended substantially in 1929. The student must lend much attention to the doctrines enshrined in the Act. An. attempt is made to present the subject with as much lucidity as possible. Case law is given its due place. No attempt is made either to exhaustively deal with the subject or to intensively probe into each doctrine. Wherever it is found essential, a comparative picture is drawn comparing the Indian Law with the English. Some topics especially on Gifts, Leases & Exchange. are too simple and easy to understand. Though the preliminary aspects relating to transfer, sale & Mortgage, are simple the various doctrines in their ramification present themselves to be formidable. A careful study should be made to understand the doctrines of "Rule against Perpetuities", of 'Election', of, Accumulation, of Acceleration, of "Ostensible Owner", of 'Lis Pendens', of "Feeding the Estoppel" of "Part Performance", "Marshaling & Contribution", of Subrogation, of Tacking etc. Illustrations should be analyzed.
