This article discusses the decision in Rowe v Prance (1999) on an unmarried partner's claim to a share in property based on an oral declaration of trust, examining whether such claims could be made not only in respect of personal property but also in respect of land. It concludes that a former cohabitee mey be able to claim a share in the family home based not on common intention nor resulting trust but on an oral declaration that the house was "ours".
