How we look to resolve your dispute

We specialise in property disputes, including land and ownership disputes.

We assist clients involved in property litigation resolve their disputes.  We are routinely instructed where parties dispute various interests and properties and consider legal concepts such as, resulting and constructive trusts, which basically unable a party to assert a in official interest in the property despite the property not being in their names. For example, if a parent lends money to their child to purchase a property, the parent may be able to claim that they have an interest in that property by their being a resulting trust.  A constructive trust may arise whereby a party relies upon specific representations made by the owner for example, and in reliance upon those representations acts towards his or her detriment and by so doing is able to successfully claim an interest in that property. We also advise on declarations of trusts of beneficial interests which are legal documents which record the legal owner and stating that the legal owner, named on the title deeds, holds the property on trust for certain beneficiaries. We also advise on trust litigation and trusts generally, which often are formed to declare the ultimate owners in a separate document. We also become involved in disputes involving partners and partnership property and in cases where one of the owners wish to sell a property despite the other owner objecting to the sale. The court in such circumstances allows the dissenting party to purchase the co-owner’s interest, or likewise, failing which the property be permitted to be sold on the open market and the proceeds divided amongst the owners according to their respective shares in the property.

Unfortunately, disputes involving properties are quite common in family type situations or in business partnerships and it is advisable for those who may end up in a dispute to obtain proper legal advice in relation to their rights and duties they can implement a strategy early on with a view to defusing the situation before the matter ends up protracted and costly litigation.
