Waite and Jewell: Environmental Law in Property Transactions provides a comprehensive practitioner guide to the environmental issues in the UK that arise in property transactions. The book is divided into three key sections: (1.) Commentary and guidance on the property transaction and identifies where the environmental issues might occur. (2.)
