Joss Knight, member of our wills and trusts team, writes an article for the Summer edition of the Trusts & Estates Journal in which he examines a claim for an interest in property on the basis of constructive trust brought after the legal owner has died.
Joss has particular experience of dealing with such claims having acted for the successful Defendant in the High Court in the much-publicised case of Culliford v Thorpe  EWHC 426 (Ch). This case provides a useful example of the principles relating to common intention constructive trusts and proprietary estoppel in action.
