The SHORTER ENCYCLOPEDIA defines and explains over 7,500 terms supplemented by more than 1,000 citations (cases, statutes and other authorities) 20,000 cross references and over 400 bibliographical references.
The primary focus of the Shorter Encyclopedia is terminology drawn from English and American real estate practice. However, it also contains Australian, Canadian, New Zealand, Scots Law, Civil Law and Latin terms.
The book is unique in that it chronicles the meaning and significance of a particular term, and provides an explanation of the legal and practical significance of the entry (see User Guide).
The Encyclopedia covers every aspect of real estate (law, economics, finance, insurance, investment, taxation, urban planning, appraisal/valuation and management) and is an essential reference guide for any investor, lawyer, consultant or real estate professional, as well as being particularly useful for students.
The Appendices contain information on over 80 Real Estate Associations (including web addresses), a comprehensive Table of Measurements, the major Real Estate Investment Formulae, and a list of Abbreviations and Acronyms.
