Abstract:Examines cases decided since the House of Lords judgment in Stack v Dowden involving a dispute about beneficial ownership of a home shared, or jointly owned, by the parties, in respect of: (1) a married couple, to whom the judicial discretion granted under English law as regards the making property orders on divorce did not apply, where the property was in the husband's.

The judges in Stack v Dowden explained that the first thing to do was to see whether the conveyance contained a statement as to how the property was to be held (a declaration of trust) which was signed by the parties. If so, that will usually be determinative. The House of Lords' keenly awaited decision in Stack v Dowden [] UKHL 17 is now with us.

While the decision has the potential to apply to all cases of legal and / or equitable co-ownership, in the absence of a declaration of the parties' beneficial interests, its most striking effect is likely to be on cohabiting couples who are joint legal owners.

Stack v Dowden. Ms Dowden and Mr Stack were co-habitees. They purchased a house in their joint names but made no declaration as to entitlement of the beneficial interest in the property. The purchase price of £,00 came from £, of MS Dowden’s savings and sale of her previous property.

Stack v Dowden. In Stack v Dowden [] (House of Lords), Lord Hope stated, Traditionally, English law has always distinguished between legal ownership in land and its beneficial ownership.

The recent decision of the House of Lords in Stack v Dowden has been heralded as a landmark ruling which establishes that, where a cohabiting couple own a property jointly, there is a presumption that they also own it in equal : David Burrows, Nicholas Orr.

The facts in Stack v Dowden are somewhat complicated, but the essential points are as follows: Mr Stack and Ms Dowden cohabited for over 20 years and had 4 children. They lived firstly in rented accommodation, then in a property in Ms Dowden’s sole name and finally in a property that they owned jointly.

When they bought the house, Ms Dowden and Mr Stack had been cohabiting for 18 years and had four children. Nearly all aspects of their respective finances had been kept separate. Nine years after purchasing the house, their relationship broke down and they agreed a court order that excluded Mr Stack from the house and required Ms Dowden to pay Mr Stack for the cost of his.
