Course Overview

Predating the state’s planning apparatus, easements and covenants are part of the tool kit for balancing public and private interests in land, and for regulating competing private interests. This course won’t make you a property lawyer, but it will introduce you to property lawyers’ territory and help you recognise when you need them.


** This course has been accredited by the Surveyors Registration Board as providing 5 ‘cadastral’ points and 1 ‘development planning’ point for the purposes of Further Professional Education and Training (FPET).
