The Law (and how to find it)...

What this website does...

Mortgage law, practice and procedure is complicated and like most other areas of law, is constantly changing. This website provides summary information only on the main topics which arise in mortgage-related litigation together with monthly updates on caselaw and other developments.

Click on the sub-pages under the Law tab to find a list of the main topics. These are in logical order and are set out in an easy to follow question and answer format with hyperlinks to all publicly available sources of law and other relevant information.

For some other useful links, have a look at these:

  • BAILII - the British and Irish Legal Information Institute - browse a whole range of UK, Commonwealth and World law resources
  • UK Legislation - browse UK Acts and Statutory Instruments
  • Ministry of Justice - for the Civil Procedure Rules, Practice Directions, Pre-Action Protocols and Forms
  • Council of Mortgage Lenders - for policy, news and statistics on residential mortgage lending
  • HM Land Registry - for a range of resources related to the registration of title to land and charges

and what it doesn't do...
