Our Barristers have significant experience in cases involving property and financial disputes where the parties’ relationship means that divorce and matrimonial finance law doesn’t apply (eg they are not married). These cases nearly always fall under the Trusts of Land and Appointment of Trustees Act (TOLATA).
Where a relationship has broken down but the parties are not married – whether they are of the same sex and in a Civil Partnership or because there is no legal relationship other than their having been living together in a home that they both contributed to one way or another, a case may involve:
- Property claims between unmarried and same sex couples including TOLATA claims
- Financial remedies on the dissolution of Civil Partnerships
- Declarations of Trust
- Constructive Trust
Becket Chambers TOLATA specialists have experience of cases involving multiple properties, Land Registry errors, and cases arising out of issues concerning contribution to shared property and equitable accounting.
Our Barristers are available to advise and draft documents as well as providing representation during proceedings.
