Family Home and Investment Property

Civil Partnership & Cohabitation Dispute

29 November 2023

Edward acted for the claimant who sought an order for sale of the former family home and an investment property co-owned with his ex-partner. His ex-partner opposed the application; she sought to remain in the family home and retain the investment property. At the conclusion of the trial, the Court ordered a sale of both properties with the equal division of the proceeds of sale. The Court was asked to carry out an equitable account of both properties and the defendant ordered to pay a five-figure sum to the claimant from their proceeds of sale.
