Casual link and consensual arrangements in estoppel
Pawlowski, Mark (2008) Casual link and consensual arrangements in estoppel. Conveyancer and Property Lawyer, 3. 253 - 261. ISSN 0010-8200Full text not available from this repository.
Analyses the Court of Appeal decision in Powell v Benney on whether in a claim of proprietary estoppel the expectation of a couple that they would receive two properties owned, and promised to them, by a deceased friend was out of proportion to the detriment suffered by them in looking after the friend and improving his properties for their own use. Considers: (1) the approach to be taken to the requirement of a causal link between the assurance given and the conduct constituting the detriment relied on; and (2) consensual arrangements and estoppel equity.
