Our Property team offers clients legal expertise in this complex area of property law. We regularly advise and act in cases involving those already named as joint owners of land and those where parties claim such an interest against a sole owner.
Claims under the Trusts of Land and Appointment of Trustees Act 1996 commonly arise:
where joint owners of land are arguing about the size of their respective beneficial shares
where one person claims an interest in a property held in the other's sole name, but which they may have occupied together for years, or
where a third party, often a family member, claims a beneficial interest by proprietary estoppel or by way of constructive trust.
Our property team members have great experience in this area, regularly advising and acting for parties involved in such disputes. To get in touch, please call the EA Law - East Anglian Chambers clerking team on 01473 214481 for further advice and assistance.
