n Comparative and International Law Journal of Southern Africa - Some thoughts on the law of property in Swaziland

Volume 39, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0010-4051



In this article I highlight a few important aspects of property law confronting lawyers in Swaziland today. Many of these problems are general and therefore also affect other branches of the law. I shall not attempt to offer solutions to the multifaceted problems generally facing the law in the country, but shall merely refer to these insofar as they influence the law of property.

Central to this article is the definition of the law of property. We define the law of property as a branch of private law which consists of a number of legal rules that determine the nature, content, establishment, protection, transfer and termination of various real relationships between a legal subject and a specific legal object (a thing), as well as the rights and duties ensuing from these relationships.
