PROPERTY: Stallion v Albert Stallion Holdings (Great Britain) Ltd [2009] EWHC 1950 (Ch)

(Chancery Division; Sarah Asplin QC (sitting as Deputy High Court Judge); 29 July 2009)

The woman's claim to a life interest in the property, and to the exclusive right to occupy the premises, was dismissed; the woman was, however, entitled to remain in the property unless special circumstances arose. There was evidence that she had agreed not to contest her divorce from the man, and that, in lieu of an order for ancillary relief, she had accepted and relied upon the man's promise, set out in a 'divorce settlement agreement' that she would have right to live at and have use of the property for life, rent free, as well as a 5 year contract of employment and a car; however, no representation had ever made of exclusive possession of property, nor had she ever enjoyed such possession.
