This manual has been written principally with the object of providing some practical assistance to Articled Clerks, Law Students, and others whose acquaintance with this branch of the law is necessarily somewhat limited from a want of actual experience in its practice.
The writer's object will have been further attained if the forms of precedents supply the want (which he has himself felt) of having ready to hand forms of general requisitions on title, which can be easily adapted to the varying circumstances arising in the investigation of title.
The precedents are largely taken from forms in actual use in the writer's own office, and where this could not be done they have been framed to meet the various contingencies that may be met with on a purchase of land or house property.
It has been found necessary to avoid, almost entirely, the framing of requisitions on "title,” properly so called, as they would be necessarily hypothetical, and, therefore, of small practical value. Moreover, the subject of title to property being one so intimately connected with the theory and practice of Conveyancing, it was thought impossible to do justice, in a work of this kind, to a subject of such vast magnitude.
