    Hi,
    I'm in need of help!

    1)I need to evaluate the significance of recent case law in relation to trusts of the family home and ....
    2)would I agree that the development for criteria for establishing such a trust is becoming more strictly applied to the facts of each case?

    Im very stuck, I don't really know what the question wants from me!
    1) Evaluate (good/bad) the significance of recent case law - assess whether it has made any impact?
    2) This is the one thats troubling me....Im clueless!

    Please, please help! Many Thanks!

    A 2:1 answer to the first part will talk about Stack v Dowden and explain what it changed (try doing an advanced search for previous posts people have done on this forum about that case)

    If you understand what you need for a resulting trust and what you need for a constructive trust after Stack v Dowden, you are on your way

    A strong presumption of equality = strict (see Abbott v Abbott as well as Stack). Flexible use of constructive trusts = not strict
