PROPERTY: Burden v UK

(European Court of Human Rights, Grand Chamber; 29 April 2008)

Siblings who cohabited in a property owned in their joint names were not entitled to the same tax exemption on the death of one of the co-owners as that available to spouses or civil partners; such tax relief did not discriminate against the siblings. Very different sorts of relationship were involved; co-habiting sisters could not be compared to a married couple or civil partners, even if the sisters had chosen to live together all their adult lives.
