A new approach to beneficial entitlement?
Pawlowski, Mark (2010) A new approach to beneficial entitlement? Trusts and Estates Law & Tax Journal, 121. pp. 4-7. ISSN 1743-5501Full text not available from this repository.
Analyses the Court of Appeal judgment in Jones v Kernott on the beneficial interests of former cohabitants who co-owned the family home, if the couple split up and the woman stayed in the home with the children, paying the mortgage and outgoings and receiving no maintenance. Discusses whether the parties must be taken to have changed their former intention to own the property in equal shares. Considers the dissenting opinion of Jacob LJ and examines the relevance for trusts and estates practitioners.
