Louise Mary Brittain (as Trustee in Bankruptcy) v. 1) Courtway Estates & 2) Shayesteh


The High Court decided that the evidence did not support a trustee in bankruptcy's application for a declaration that the bankrupt was the beneficial owner of a property. The bankrupt's wife had a competing claim to a beneficial interest either because she had an interest in the shares in the company that was the registered proprietor of the property or under a resulting trust as she had provided the purchase funds.
