Proprietary estoppel is a claim where a party claims a right to land belonging to another party, in circumstances where the claimant has been led to believe, by a promise (by words or conduct) by the other party, that they have or can expect to be given an interest in the land.

Essential elements of proprietary estoppel are:
The owner of land induces, encourages or allows the claimant to believe that they have or will enjoy some right or benefit over owner’s property.
Claimant relies on that belief and acts to their detriment, to the reasonably determined knowledge of the owner.
Owner then seeks to take unconscionable advantage of the claimant by denying them the right or benefit which they expected to receive.


Take a look at Guest v Guest & another [2019] EWHC 869 (CH) which discusses issues.
