TOLATA 

Specialist TOLATA solicitors helping you with all property related matters.

We are regularly instructed by clients in relation to property ownership disputes.

Property ownership disputes may arise in many situations however they often arise in the context of unmarried couples and families who have invested in property together , such as:

  1. Cohabiting partners who are not married but have contributed in different ways towards a property.
  2. Siblings, or other family members, who have purchased a the property together as an investment or business venture.
  3. Children who have inherited a property in different shares.
  4. Various other circumstances in which beneficial ownership differs to the legal ownership of a property for any other reason.

If you have invested money into a property, either by way of contributing towards the purchase price, mortgage payments or contributions towards renovations, even if you are not the legal owner, you may still have a beneficial interest in a property, or the property may be being held on trust for you.

A property does not necessarily need to be in your name for you to have a beneficial interest in it or for it to be held on trust for you, in certain circumstances. For example, you may still have a beneficial interest in a property even if you are not married or if your name has not been registered on the title deeds.

Claims involving property disputes often require navigating complex areas of law such as proprietary estoppel, equitable accounting, constructive trusts and TOLATA.
