The Dictionary of TLATA and Inheritance Act Claims sets out the key concepts, cases and practice in four important areas where family law overlaps with the law of trusts and real property: (i) the Trusts of Land and Appointment of Trustees Act 1996 (‘TLATA’); (ii) applications for financial provision pursuant to the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975; (iii) Schedule 1 applications for financial relief for children; and (iv) an overview of civil procedure and the Civil Procedure Rules 1998. This publication contains a procedural guide and table of relevant cases.

Divided into sections with an easy to use A-Z format with detailed footnotes, each entry acts as a practice note on the topic, setting out the essential law, key cases and practice points you need to be able to advise on the issue with a minimum of fuss. The book distils the experience of the authors who aim to provide a concise, practical and above all helpful guide to everything from detriment to cost budgeting, from classes of applicants to the rights of engaged couples.

The guidance is packed into a portable A4 book, which will be updated annually, which will make the Dictionary of TLATA and Inheritance Act Claims the perfect court companion and trusted library reference.

A digital edition for use on all computers, tablets and smartphones is available.

Who would find this book useful?

  • Solicitors, barristers and legal executives who practice mainly in family law, but who act in claims involving cohabitees, intervenor, or where a claim is made against an estate under the 1975 Act or on behalf of a child under Schedule 1
  • Family Court judges
  • Mediators and other professionals involved in out of court dispute resolution, and
  • McKenzie Friends, litigants in person or anyone else who needs to be updated on civil procedure and the sometimes obscure world of TLATA and the Inheritance Act
