Abstract

Compares the approach of Scottish and English law to property claims by cohabitants. Comments on the House of Lords ruling in Stack v Dowden on a claim by an ex cohabitant in relation to the wealth generated during the relationship, in particular how the presumption of either sole or equal ownership could be overturned, and considers the application of Sots law to similar cases. Discusses the impact of the Family Law (Scotland) Act 2006.
