Information about Amanda

Do you want to improve your grade in Property law (Land law) or Equitable Rights and Obligations (Trusts)? You may have missed some classes and are struggling to catch up, or you might just be struggling to get to grips with these difficult topics. If you are struggling to understand land law, I can help you. I can help you understand the basics and develop a thorough understanding of the key topics. Many students find asking questions in seminars intimidating and worry that they make look foolish. Discuss your concerns and ask as many questions as you like in a one-to-one session. My sessions are always tailored to the individual’s needs. I can help students with structuring answers to ‘problem’ questions and provide support for exam preparation. I have lots of past examination questions students can work through with me. I can also provide learning materials for students to work through with me and on their own. I am extremely thorough in my approach. I take an ethical approach to my role, so I do not write your assignments for you as this would be academically dishonest. However, I will improve your understanding and help you to work out how to structure the answer thereby empowering you to answer the question independently.

Areas taught are as follows:
1 Understanding of property law (Land Law)
(i) The nature of land
(ii) Estates and interests in land (iii) Principles of unregistered title to land
(iv) Registration of title to land
(v) Co-ownership of land
(vi) Leases
(vii) Easements and profits
(viii) Freehold Covenants
(ix) Mortgages; mortgagee`s remedies to enforce their security.

2. Understanding of Equitable rights and obligations (Equity and Trusts)
(i)Creation and requirements of express trusts: Certainty of objects in both fixed interest and discretionary trusts; the formalities required for an express inter vivos trust; the constitution of express inter vivos trusts including transfers to trustees and declaration of self as trustee; the exceptions to the rule that equity will not assist a volunteer.
(ii)Trusts of the Family Home:
(iii)The fiduciary relationship and its obligations
(iv)Strangers as constructive trustees: establishing recipient liability; establishing accessory liability.
(v)Trustees: trustees’ duty of care; trustees’ power and duty to invest
(vi)Trustees liability: breach of trust; trustees’ relief from liability and defences, limitation period.
(vii) Tracing trust property in equity
(viii) Quistclose trusts.

Availability: Weekdays 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. I prefer face-to-face tuition and offer classes in my home. I`m happy to meet you in a public place if you prefer e.g. Starbucks or local coffee shop. Proofreading service offered remotely.
