Understand the fundamentals of this area of the blackletter law in this Exam Crash Course Session. This is your chance to make sure that you fully grasp this part of the SQE syllabus and have the confidence to answer SQE1-style MCQs on this topic.  Use this Session to tick off this topic before the exam, so you are ready to smash any MCQ that comes your way.

We will be covering the following areas of the SQE1 syllabus:

  • Nature of Land:

    o How to acquire and dispose of legal and equitable interests in land
    o Methods to protect and enforce third party interests
    o Different ways in which land can be held
    o Legal formalities required to create and transfer interests and estates in land
     Title to Land:
    o Registration of title to land:
     Estates that can be substantively registered
     How to protect interests
     Interests that override registration and interests that need to be protected on the register
    o Core principles of unregistered title to land:
    o Role of title deeds
    o Land Charges
    o Continuing role of doctrine of notice

We will start by going over and discussing the SQE1 syllabus for this topic, and what you actually need to know for the exam.

Then we will go over the underlying blackletter law rules, covering what is necessary to answer any SQE1 MCQs. You can ask any questions you like on this topic throughout the Session.

We will then finish by tackling an SQE1-style MCQ based on what we have covered in this Session. This will allow you to confirm and strengthen your understanding of the law we have covered in the Session and develop your MCQ-answering technique, which is critical to passing the exam.
