This virtual classroom seminar will use case studies to consider the main issues which typically arise in family context cohabitation cases: sole name cases; joint names cases; and ‘bank of mum and dad’ cases.

The live session is designed to get you thinking about the key issues and building blocks of a ToLATA case.

It will leave you informed and with greater confidence to deal with ToLATA issues in your caseload, whether in the context of intervenor claims in family proceedings or as pure stand-alone civil proceedings between unmarried cohabitees.

What You Will Learn

This live and interactive session will cover the following:

  • Four cases studies - one sole name case, two joint names cases, and one more procedural case study
  • The common intention constructive trust - its ingredients and presumptions
  • The key sections of the Trusts of Land and Appointment of Trustees Act 1996 and which sections are likely to arise in every-day practice
  • How to find an implied trust - what is common intention and how can it be inferred?
  • What is the difference between inference and imputation? When do each come into application?
  • Which cases are suitable for Part 7 and which are suitable for Part 8?
  • What about intervenors in family law proceedings?
  • Equitable accounting and the issues it can raise and resolve
  • Questions and discussion on key practitioner issues
