Abstract:

"This book is the first extensive treatment of deathbed gifts in English law to be published. Such gifts are sometimes made by donors who, when facing impending death, transfer their property conditionally on death. It is a fascinating area of the law containing rules which have their origins in Roman law, and which have continued to be developed in modern law combining aspects of the laws of succession, trusts and personal property." "Deathbed Gifts provides a detailed exposition and analysis of the current rules. It also traces the origins of the law and examines its continued development by the courts. The subject is represented by a rich case law including recent Court of Appeal decisions; a comprehensive summary of the case law is included."--BOOK JACKET.
