FAMILY PROVISION: Negus v Bahouse

(Chancery Division; Judge Roger Kaye QC sitting as judge of High Court; 23 October 2007)

Although the deceased's cohabitant had failed to establish that statements made by the deceased amounted to a grant of beneficial interest in the property in which the couple had lived, the cohabitant was entitled to reasonable financial provision from the estate as a dependent living with the deceased for the 2 years immediately preceding the death. Of the £2.2 million estate, the cohabitant was to receive the property, free of mortgage, plus £240,000.
