Property can be jointly owned in many different circumstances; siblings may inherit property under a Will; friends may club together to get onto the ‘property ladder’; unmarried couples may choose to buy a property together, or investors may acquire investment residential or commercial property together, to give just a few examples. All is well when everyone is in agreement, but if relationships subsequently breakdown, questions arise as to whether a sale of the property can be forced, and by whom, and if it is sold, what the respective entitlements are to the sale proceeds.  

Property disputes between such parties are handled by our experienced property litigators, Laura Tanguay and Stephanie Butler, who specialise in this complex area. Where children are involved it can become more complex and we work closely with our colleagues in the family department in those instances.
