This chapter examines the relation among common intention constructive trusts, proprietary estoppel, and licences. It explains the principle and legal definitions of these three and suggests that their relation arose out of the courts' view that a claimant should have a remedy in circumstances in which it was at least doubtful whether he or she was entitled to one under existing rules as previously understood. The chapter analyses court rulings in several related cases and considers the Pallant v Morgan equity case.
