PROPERTY: Laskar v Laskar [2008]

(Court of Appeal; Tuckey LJ, Lord Neuberger of Abbotsbury and Rimer LJ; 7 February 2008)

The presumption that, in the absence of a specific declaration of trust by the parties, domestic property conveyed into joint names was held jointly and equally in terms both of legal and of beneficial interests, applied to a family home occupied by cohabitants, not to commercial property or property purchased as an investment. It was not right to apply Stack v Dowden to cases in which the primary purpose of the property purchase had been as an investment, even if there was a family relationship between the parties.
