Global Issues in Property Law

Yesterday afternoon's mail brought Global Issues in Property Law  by John Sprankling, Raymond Coletta, and M.C. Mirow (published by Thomson West).  It looks like a terrific volume, which you can assign to students as a supplement to your casebook, to give students a global perspective on property.  There's everything in here from the global agreement on the moon to human rights and property to eviction of tenants in Portugal, to squatters rights, the right to exclude, nusiance, and takings.  I'm going to spend some time with this and learn about a lot about topics on which I know less than I'd like.

I'm a fan of these kinds of texts, which are reasonably priced (less than $20) and help to round out the casebook.  I think you'll want to check it out and consider it for adoption.  Also, I know it would go well in an upper-level course on transnational perspectives on property, perhaps in conjunction with Gregory Alexander's Global Debate Over Constitutional Property.

My husband ( we reside in America) just inherited a condo in portugal (from his dad who passed away) that has a tenant in it who is renting for almost nothing. It seems that her parents rented from my father in law for many years and when they died their daughter was able to move in. She is in her 60's pretending to have health issues. Is it true that we cannot have our condo back? Is it possible to evict her or raise her rent to a reasonable current rate? If so, what percentage of an increase and how often?

Thank you !
