The focus is primarily on property used by family members, rather than investment property. It explores some general principles of Irish succession law and relevant law of real property.

It then moves on to an exploration of a tax efficient basis for investing in real property assets. It explores the use of trusts as ultimate ownership vehicles for Irish real property, and other ownership structures which can be used. Finally, it addresss the domestic taxes applicable to owners and occupants of real property.
