The article examines the way in which the courts seek to calculate the parties' respective beneficial shares in the joint family home when events post-acquisition give rise to a claim by one of the parties to an enlarged share in the property under Stack principles. A number of approaches to calcualtion are discussed: (1) the holistic approach; (2) crystallising a party's beneficial interest when he/she leaves the home; (3) when property is purchased as an investment; and (4) when one party makes substantial improvements to the property post-acquisition. The article also discusses the extent to which equitable accounting plays a part in this process.
