All books in this flagship series contain carefully selected substantial extracts from key cases, legislation, and academic debate, providing able students with a stand-alone resource. This chapter focuses on the resolution of property and financial disputes that may arise between family members who are not spouses or civil partners and so who cannot use the statutory remedies discussed in chapter 6. Instead, parties rely largely on the general law of property, trusts, and contract to provide solutions. This chapter examines those areas of law, and the few statutory provisions that apply between these parties, before considering the prospects for reform.
