Changes in Trustees – Who Appoints New Trustees?

24th February, 2017 By Alireza Nurbakhsh

Trusts are relatively common and the death of a trustee is by no means rare. A trust deed normally contains a clause stipulating how new trustees are to be appointed in the event of the death, incapacity or inability to serve of a trustee, and normally it is the settlor of the trust who retains the power to appoint trustees. The Trustee Act 1925 (Section 36) provides that the right to appoint new trustees will rest with the persons 'nominated for the purposes of appointing new trustees' in the trust...

Expert Resolution of Boundary Dispute 'Final and Binding'

22nd February, 2017 By Alireza Nurbakhsh

Neighbours engaged in boundary disputes would generally be wise to submit their differences to an independent expert for resolution, rather than fighting it out in court. However, as one High Court case underlined, it is important to remember that the expert's decision is final and, unless appealed, binding, warts and all. The case concerned a narrow strip of land between two suburban homes. A couple that owned one of them argued that the boundary line was marked by a timber post that had stood at the front of the properties....

IVAs and Mental Capacity – Test Case Ruling

21st February, 2017 By Alireza Nurbakhsh

Can individual voluntary arrangements (IVAs) be valid if debtors who enter into them lack the mental capacity to make rational decisions? In an important test case that has clarified the law, the High Court answered that question in the affirmative. The case concerned a woman who, with her husband and others, was said to owe £224,000 in unpaid tax. She entered into an IVA but, after she failed to keep to its terms, a bankruptcy order was obtained against her by HM Revenue and Customs. Some years before she signed...

Reliance on Accountant's Advice Prevents Penalty

16th February, 2017 By Alireza Nurbakhsh

When a man inherited a property, he and his wife rented it out and later put it on the market for sale. In May 2010, they exchanged contracts for sale. They moved into the property at the end of June that year and lived in it for nearly a month, moving out again on 22 July in advance of the completion of the sale on 23 July. Their accountant advised them that they could claim principal private residence (PPR) relief for Capital Gains Tax (CGT) for the last three years...
