Members of Harcourt are frequently instructed in disputes over ownership of the family home between unmarried cohabitants. Several of our members have dual practises incorporating both Family Law and the Law of Property and Trusts and are ideally placed to represent clients at Court in these disputes and offer advice before proceedings as to the strength of a potential claim.
The Finance Group routinely advise and represent clients in disputes between spouses and third parties (often family members) concerning the ownership of the matrimonial home or other family property. Matthew Brett has appeared in several leading cases in this area.
Our clerks are happy to assist you in identifying appropriate specialist counsel to undertake drafting, advice, and representation in these areas.
