Abstract

This, the second part of a two-part article concerning claims to the family home by an unmarried partner, looks at the use of informal declarations of trust to acquire a share in the family home. Considers what evidence is required to prove a beneficial interest including a clear intention to create a trust by way of conduct or verbal reassurance. Looks at when an unenforceable declaration of trust relating to land can become enforceable by way of a constructive trust where one party has acted to his/her detriment in reliance on the unenforceable declaration.
