Property Disputes (TOLATA)

Navigating the complexities of property disputes as an unmarried couple requires specialised expertise and a deep understanding of the unique legal landscape. At Walker Family Law, we exclusively practice family law, including matters concerning unmarried couples and their property disputes.

What is TOLATA?

The Trusts of Land and Appointment of Trustees Act 1996 (TOLATA) is a crucial piece of legislation in England and Wales that governs the rights and responsibilities of individuals who have a shared interest in land or property. TOLATA is particularly relevant in cases where cohabiting couples or family members jointly own a property but face disputes regarding ownership, occupation, or financial interests. We specialise in handling cases related to TOLATA.

How We Can Help

Resolving property disputes often involves negotiation and mediation. Our expert family lawyers are skilled in alternative dispute resolution, helping you achieve the right outcome for your situation. We will listen to your needs and concerns and handle all the legal aspects of your case, including the preparation of legal documentation such as cohabitation agreements, property agreements, or other contracts that can clarify ownership, rights, and responsibilities. These documents can provide a solid foundation and prevent potential disputes in the future.

If you are facing a TOLATA dispute or have questions about your rights and responsibilities, we can provide you with the expert legal advice and support that you need.
