If you are caught up in a dispute with your business partner or co-owner over the sale of a jointly owned property, we can provide specialist advice to help you protect your interests.

Disputes can arise over who is entitled to benefit from the sale proceeds, especially during the sale of business assets or property. If the property is in your partner’s name and you have contributed towards the deposit and mortgage, you may be entitled to a share of the property.

We understand your business property is likely to have been a significant and important investment. We will fight your corner, while maintaining an objective stance to ensure that you are properly advised as well as achieving the best possible outcome.

What happens when a property is in joint names?

If the property is owned in joint names, it is often presumed that each owner is entitled to 50% of the property value. Your entitlement will depend on your individual circumstances and will usually be determined by the Trusts of Land and Appointment of Trustees Act 1996. It can also depend on whether the property is owned as ‘Tenants in Common’ or as ‘Joint Tenants’.
