When: 4.30pm to 6pm, Thursday 9 May 2019

Where: Logan Campbell Room, Northern Club, Princes Street, Auckland

 

In this seminar Professor Henaghan examines the complex recent decision of the Supreme Court in Scott v Williams. This case discussed a number of important procedural matters. It also decided three significant issues of relationship property law, issues that commonly arise in property relationship cases. These include: the vesting of property in the hands of one partner, valuation of a business, and the calculation of compensation when there is a disparity of income between the parties. 

 

In addition, our presenter reviews the Law Commission Report that was released in November 2018 that considered the Relationship (Property) Act 1976. One of the key proposals was that the family home should no longer be split 50:50 between the parties. What would this mean in relationship property cases and what are the merits of these proposals? For the flyer click here
