Discusses, with regard to contracts for the sale of land, whether the remedy of specific performance should be less readily available. Reviews the role of specific performance in UK law, the unique nature of real property, the Canadian courts' move away from specific performance towards damages, and why the UK should not follow such a policy, including its impact on the conveyancing process and the assessment of damages.
