Do we still need to prove Detriment in TOLATA Cases?

Presented by Elissa Da Costa-Waldman

This session will consider the ‘old’ law on detriment in both constructive trust and proprietary estoppel cases and what has historically constituted acts of detriment, such as moving countries, changing careers, making large contributions to the acquisition of property and other actions. In many TOLATA cases of old, detriment has been an essential factor but is this still the case in the light of Hudson v Hathway? Find out by joining this session!

In addition, there has long been debate about whether the remedies in proprietary estoppel cases are confusing and what exactly the remedy should be. This year saw a Supreme Court decision, Guest v Guest on the point so be my Guest and find out!
