This chapter explores how it is possible for someone living in a family home to acquire an interest in it. It examines the equitable mechanisms used to confer interests in the family home, both in cases of express agreement and where the arrangements between the parties are more informal. These are: express trusts, resulting trusts, constructive trusts, and proprietary estoppels.
