Cohabitation and Trusts of Land provides practical guidance for family solicitors engaged in property disputes between cohabiting or other unmarried couples. It explains the key legislation, the Trusts of Land and Appointment of Trustees Act 1996 (TLATA), and steers practitioners through all aspects of practice and procedure.

The new edition has been extensively updated and takes account of major new case law, such as Jones v Kernott, as well as the Jackson reforms, includes new chapters on Cohabitation Agreements, intervening in ancillary relief, and disputes between parents and adult children regarding property, and also includes greatly expanded coverage of mediation, occupation orders and personal obligations.
