Reclaiming investment in property improvements

Paul acted for an individual who wished to reclaim his contribution towards the costs of improvements to a property owned by his former partner (girlfriend); the client had invested a considerable sum towards the works to the property and lent his partner cash sums on the basis that he would be repaid from the proceeds of sale of the property.

Paul helped his client recover the whole of his contributions and loans and the costs of the proceedings, secured against a new property the ex-partner had purchased from the sale of the original property.
