Litigation Disputes

Jointly owned property disputes

Disputes relating to jointly owned property

There are various reasons at to why people own property jointly with another person, often an unmarried partner, a relative or friend. Jointly owned  property can be residential, commercial or agricultural, but disputes can arise when joint owners no longer have the same intentions.

When joint owners cannot come to an agreement in relation to the property, either of the owners can apply to court for directions or for an order for the sale of the property.

An application to the court can be made under the Trusts of Land and Appointment of Trustees Act 1996  (also known as TLATA)  which  gives the courts various powers with regards to disputes about ownership of property.
