Untitled - Securing Land Tenure In Urban And Rural South Africa (Paperback): Donna Hornby, Rosalie Kingwill, Lauren Royston,... Untitled - Securing Land Tenure In Urban And Rural South Africa (Paperback)

A title deed = tenure security. Or does it? This book challenges this simple equation and its apparently self-evident assumptions. It argues that two very different property paradigms characterise South Africa.

The first is the dominant paradigm of private property, referred to as an ‘edifice’, against which all other property regimes are measured and ranked. However, the majority of South Africans gain access to land and housing through very different processes, which this book calls social or off-register tenures. These tenures are poorly understood, a gap Untitled aims to address. The book reveals that ‘informal’ and customary property systems can be well organised, often providing substantial tenure security, but lack official recognition and support. This makes them difficult to service and vulnerable to elite capture.

Policy interventions usually aim to formalise these arrangements by issuing title deeds. The case studies in this book, which span both rural and urban contexts in South Africa, examine these interventions and the unintended consequences they often give rise to. Interventions based on an understanding of locally embedded property relations are more likely to succeed than those that attempt to transform them into registered tenures. However, emerging practices hit intractable obstacles associated with the ‘edifice’, which only a substantial transformation of the legal paradigms can overcome.

The Law of Delict in South Africa, third edition, offers an introduction to the general principles of delictual law. Comprehensive in scope, while clear and concise, the text provides a rich contextual framework which supports understanding and application of the principles.

Features:

  • The text offers a progressive discussion of the law of delict, analysing the extent to which the common law of delict reflects the diverse, multicultural values of South African society, and proposing a framework for continuing, inclusive development of the common law. In addition, the third edition offers a deeper critical discussion of the relationship between common law principles and the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa.
  • The third edition draws critical connections between established principles of delictual law and the rapidly-developing technological context. Discussions, which relate and apply principles to the context of modern technologies, are integrated throughout the text.

Scott on Cession: A Treatise on the Law in South Africa is a comprehensive exposition of the law of cession. Scott incorporates aspects of her doctoral thesis (1977), her previous book on cession, The Law of Cession, (1991) and her articles on cession that have been published in law journals. The book focuses on case law, but case law as a source of law in this branch of the law poses particular problems: some of the earlier decisions, and even recent ones, are based on Roman-Dutch law, which no longer completely satisfies current modern needs. To explain certain idiosyncrasies in the case law, Scott refers to the historical development of cession as a legal institution. The book also provides extensive commentary on certain problematic aspects of cession, using comparable legal systems, and incorporates the dogmatic foundations of the law of cession.

This is the fifth edition of the book that has appeared for the first time in 1992 as a relatively concise text, primarily aimed at students in the law of succession. In its successive editions the book has evolved into a more general source on the South African law of succession. Through its approach, presentation and systematic method the work remains ideal for use as a textbook in courses in the law of succession.

The purpose of this book is to provide a first introduction for an elementary course in property law. Introduction to Property Law was written specifically for students in such a first course on the subject, and therefore the contents are restricted to what the authors regard as essential for these students. Footnotes have not been used for the same reason; in an introductory course the emphasis should arguably fall on understanding basic concepts and principles, rather than on further sources and materials. However, extensive use is made of examples from case law. Introduction to Property Law attempts to give a picture of property law in the new constitutional system, and therefore a few chapters on the constitutional property clause and land reform have been included. This new edition is consequently also published as part of Juta's Property Law Library, which is aimed as a series to illustrate the interplay between the common law, the constitution and legal reform in a constitutional system. As an introduction, the book is different from the other volumes in the series in that it is specifically aimed at students.

McKenzie's law of building and engineering contracts and arbitration is an essential reference for those connected with the construction industry. It is the leading reference work dealing with South African contract law relating specifically to engineering and building contracts.

This is the first book to explain the law applicable to the updated Joint Building Contracts Committee (JBCC) Principle Building Agreement (6th edition, 2014) and the Engineering General Conditions of Contract for Construction Works (2nd edition, 2010), which are both annexed to the book and extensively cross-referenced to assist the reader. The book also cross-references the relevant clauses of the FIDIC Contract Agreement (1999). Disputes arising out of building contracts are often referred to arbitration for solution.

This work therefore deals with the effect of the Arbitration Act 42 of 1965 and the Association of Arbitrators Standard Procedure Rules, which are also reproduced as annexures in the book.

Both the law of testate succession and the law of intestate succession are of major importance to the administrator of an estate in determining how estate assets should be distributed.

The most important aspects of these branches of the law are regulated by legislation. There are, however, aspects of the law that are based on common law and which are not governed by legislation. These matters, such as the interpretation of wills, aspects regarding the capacity to inherit, accrual and massing are also discussed.

R959 R803 Discovery Miles 8 030 Save R156 (16%) Ships in 4 - 8 working days

This book comprehensively, yet succinctly, covers the use and administration of trusts in South Africa. It also serves as a useful reference to more detailed texts on the subject as well as to case law. Whilst the Trust Property Control Act 57 of 1988 sets out the minimum requirements when it comes to the formation and administration of trusts, other statutes (including the Income Tax Act, the Estate Duty Act, and the Alienation of Land Act) also have a direct bearing on how trusts are formed, administered, amended and terminated. Moreover, the common law has been a major factor in the development of trust law in South Africa. This book therefore not only deals with the legislation that is relevant to trusts, but it highlights and discusses the case law which has been an essential part of the development of the law of trusts.

A book that requires no introduction, Caney’s The Law of Suretyship has, for over 70 years, been an authoritative reference work for the law of suretyship in South Africa. The 6th edition incorporates significant developments since the last edition in 2002, a period in which South African courts have been very busy in this area of the law.

This latest edition once again ensures that the treatment of its subject matter is most comprehensive, whilst remaining accessible to non-specialists.

The Law of Suretyship contains three parts, each dealing with different stages in the life of a contract of surety, namely: the nature, formation and operation of the contract; the rights of the surety; and the release of the surety. Each part contains a detailed discussion of their respective topic.

The authors’ treatment of each topic is well researched and supported by a host of authority, and the main text is enhanced by additional information and further discussions in the footnotes.

Sectional Titles and Other Fragmented Property Schemes aims to describe the different forms of urban fragmented property schemes introduced by legislation. Therefore, the functioning of the management bodies of such schemes and the nature and effect of management and conduct rules are emphasised to indicate to what extent the idea of urban fragmented property holding has changed the property concept in the new constitutional dispensation in South Africa.

Relevant case law, new legislative developments, especially the amended Sectional Titles Act 95 of 1986, the Sectional Titles Schemes Management Act 8 of 2011, the Community Schemes Ombud Service Act 9 of 2011 and the Companies Act 71 of 2008, are discussed comprehensively to indicate how fragmented property schemes are governed and how disputes regarding use rights of individual sections and the common property of such schemes are solved.

Juta’s Property Law Library is aimed at revisiting and reassessing the whole of South African property law, which includes uncodified common law that is mostly embodied in case law, academic writing and legislation, to establish:

  • how each aspect of property law was influenced by apartheid law;
  • its response to the new constitutional dispensation (including land reform), and;
  • whether it can make a contribution towards the transformation of South African law and society.

For this purpose, Juta’s Property Law Library will eventually consist of a number of monographs, each of which is focused on a specific aspect of property law.

Property in Minerals and Petroleum is the first major academic text to analyse the state-custodianship concept in South African law with emphasis on its application in mineral and petroleum law. As such, the book seeks to stimulate academic discourse about the impact of the incorporation of state custodianship in this field of law. The book considers the nature of mineral and petroleum rights in a state-custodianship model within a constitutional context. It clarifies the institutional regime change that lead to the regulatory context in which such rights now can be acquired, transferred or lost. The first chapter of Property in Minerals and Petroleum focuses on the constitutional imperatives for reform in mineral and petroleum law, and on the changing concepts of property and landownership that paved the way for transformation. Further chapters evaluate the pre-2004 mineral and petroleum law dispensation and address the current dispensation under the Mineral and Petroleum Resources Development Act (MPRDA). The section on the MPRDA focuses on the aims and objectives of the Act; the notion of state custodianship and its impact on existing property law; the meaning of the terms `mineral' and `petroleum'; the nature, content and regulation of rights to minerals and petroleum; the acquisition, transfer and termination of such rights; and various miscellaneous aspects that straddle existing property law principles and the regulation of minerals and petroleum.

This new edition of Child Law in South Africa does not merely follow in the path of its predecessor: this publication includes 11 entirely new chapters and 11 `new' authors - experts who did not contribute to the previous edition. Even the `revised' chapters add value as they systematically and critically deal with new knowledge and enhance research. Child Law in South Africa is written by 22 experts in the field, edited by Professor Trynie Boezaart, an internationally acknowledged researcher in child law, and independently peer-reviewed. The book reflects the enormous scope and dynamics involved in child law and is sure to encourage further debate and analysis.

Zimbabwe’s Constitution of 2013 provides for multi-level government at national, provincial and local level. This book explores the nature, evolution and future of this multi-level system of government against the background of international best practices.

Provincial and Local Government Reform in Zimbabwe: An analysis of the Law, Policy and Practice considers key questions about the multi-level system of government and shows how it radically differs from the old Lancaster House constitutional order.

The roles that provincial and local governments, as well as traditional leaders, fulfil in the new order are examined, the reforms needed to implement the system are outlined, and lessons to be learnt from other countries with multi-level governments are considered.

This book aims to aid the realisation of Zimbabwe’s constitutional goals of development, democracy and peace through effective multilevel governance and contributes to the international discourse on decentralisation and the role of subnational governments in Africa.

The Law of Landlord and Tenant revisits the law of landlord and tenant in light of the constitutional context to determine how this area of law has developed, especially since the pre-1994 era, to further constitutional goals.

The purpose of the volume is to place legislation, case law, academic analysis and policy considerations in the context of the constitutional framework within which private law rights are acquired, exercised and transferred or lost, but also add to existing academic commentary some sections of foreign law where the comparison might provide insight to the South African landlord-tenant context.
