Edinburgh University Press

Discusses the English House of Lords decision of Stack v Dowden [2007] 2 AC 432 which was a claim for property division between ex-cohabitants. The case was decided under the common law since England lacks the legislation that Scotland has in the Family Law (Scotland) Act 2006. Title was in joint names but the claimant sought a division of the property other than 50-50. The House of Lords discusses the underlying principles to deal with such a claim. The commentary also discusses two Scottish claims that are made under the concept of unjustified enrichment

Keywords:   Proprietary rights between cohabitants, Presumptions of sole or equal ownership, Unjustified enrichment claims, Family Law (Scotland) Act 2006
