3rd Supplement to 30r.e.
"Snell's Equity" deals with equitable principles and remedies, together with their application in trusts, probate and mortgages. Containing comprehensive coverage, and frequently cited in court, it offers expert interpretation of the rules of equity and how they can be applied in different situations. This 30th edition includes: an examination of the nature of equities and the maxims of equity; discussions of dealings with equities including assignments of choices in action and priorities; detailed coverage of the three main substantive fields of equity jurisdiction, namely trusts, the administration of assets and securities, particularly mortgages; an analysis of the five ancient equitable doctrines of conversion, reconversion, election, performance and satisfaction; individual assessment of the situations in which equity has intervened to safeguard those who, by their status or their circumstances, are in need of protection; and consideration of a wide range of equitable remedies.
New material in this edition includes coverage of the continuing developments in case law in the fields of constructive trusts, undue influence, subrogation, estoppel, co-ownership interests, injunctions and specific performance. Additionally the growing application of trusts and fiduciary obligations in commercial contexts is taken into account. Of the many new statutes referred to, arguably the most important is the Trusts of Land and Appointment of Trustees Act 1996.
