Trusts of land

Disputes regarding land held upon trust can take many and varied forms. Those resulting from the breakdown of domestic relationships may more often be based upon informal and factually sensitive creation of rights by way of implied trusts, while those arising from commercial transactions can involve the interpretation of complex formal documentation. They may also be coupled with ancillary issues such as the payment of occupation rent or financial provision for children.

Chambers is able to offer expertise at all levels of call to deal with the various forms in which these disputes manifest themselves and the complex legal and factual issues they present.

Members of chambers were involved in the leading case in the area Stack v Dowden [2007] 2 WLR 831 from first instance up to and including the House of Lords and regularly give lectures and seminars on this topic.
