The Kent Family Home: Matrimonial Home or Resulting Trust?
Kent is an interesting decision by the court of appeal. While it contains somewhat unique facts, it is always helpful when the court of appeal clarifies issues in family law relating to a resulting trust. This case is particularly interesting because of its intersection with estates law.
Kent reminds both lawyers and the public that extreme caution is needed with gratuitous property transfers, to make sure the intended result occurs.
