A new Australian edition of Fisher & Lightwood’s Law of Mortgage has just been published by LexisNexis. This is the third Australian edition of the classic English text. The authors of the three Australian editions have been Professor E.Tyler, the Honourable Justice Peter Young and the Honourable Justice Clyde Croft. The first English edition (called Fisher on Mortgages) was published in 1856. There have been 13 English editions. The Australian editions are particularly useful because the English editions do not deal with the Torrens system. The third Australian edition deals with the significant changes made to personal property securities by the Personal Property Securities Act 2009 (Cth). The chapter on the PPSA was written by Clare Langford, the NSW Supreme Court Equity Researcher. This text is a significant resource for any person practising in property law.
