Comprehensive. Detailed. Informative. These are just a few ways to describe the new edition of Krasnowiecki on Real Property Law and Practice. This comprehensive analysis of emerging and evolving law covers the areas of mortgage financing, bankruptcy, mechanics’ liens, zoning and land use, eminent domain, governmental regulatory measures, and more, backing up the discussion with specific case law examples and fact patterns.

New material includes Act 13 updates and Robinson Township IV; subsurface estates and “title washing”; quiet title actions against “heirs or assigns unknown”; title and property issues in the oil and gas industry—In re Sabine Oil & Gas Corporation, Kennedy v. Consol Energy, Inc., and Vosburg v. NBC Seventh Realty Corporation; legislative zoning changes and rezoning ordinances; eminent domain and pipeline companies as public utilities; treatment of underwater mortgages in bankruptcy; sale of entireties property to satisfy tax liability of only one spouse; equitable right to subrogation of mortgage lender; and maintenance of streets and sidewalks. Along with the recent important Pennsylvania decisions that are covered at some length in this new edition, numerous earlier Pennsylvania cases, both state and federal, have been added to aid the practitioner in further research.
