Landlord Law Legal Basics – Common law and Statute
'Common law' has several different meanings and is also different from 'statute' or legislation. This is fundamental to how the English and Welsh legal system works. This course gives a brief explanation.
Contract law is one of the four fundamental legal topics that form the foundation of our legal system (civil law). Contract law also forms part of tenancy law, so if you understand how it works then this will help you understand tenancy law.
Agency law is a special type of contract law which applies when someone is authorised to create a contract on behalf of another. You should read the 'Contract law' and 'Trust and Equity' courses before taking this course.
