What is an 'Existing Building'? – Tax Tribunal Clarifies the Law

21st September, 2017 By Alireza Nurbakhsh

A property owner who demolishes an existing dwelling house and replaces it with an entirely new one is entitled to reclaim VAT on the costs of construction – but what happens if part of the original building is retained? A tribunal considered that issue in a case that clarified the law. A company had demolished all but two walls, and part of a third, of a coach house before constructing a replacement that was of greater height and had a larger footprint than the original. Its argument that the costs...

Equality of Division of Assets on Divorce Abolished? Hardly

18th September, 2017 By Alireza Nurbakhsh

The popular press has made a great deal of a recent Court of Appeal case, reporting that there had been a significant departure from the general principle that the assets built up by a couple during their marriage are to be split more or less equally on divorce. In the family court, the judge had divided the couple's assets 'down the middle', awarding a wealthy trader's husband £2.75m of total assets of £5.45m. This led to a challenge by the wife, who had earned the large majority of the money. On...

15th September, 2017 By Alireza Nurbakhsh

The old adage that 'an Englishman's home is his castle' is only partially true and the impact of planning law on a property owner's rights can be far-reaching – even extending to limiting the right of occupation. This is particularly an issue in areas of the country where there are many holiday homes, as there are often planning restrictions that forbid their occupation all the year round or as principal residences. Although the owners of the homes may ignore them, they are enforceable and, as a recent Court of Appeal...

High Court Dementia Ruling – Judge Acts to Protect Widow

12th September, 2017 By Alireza Nurbakhsh

Amidst an ageing population, the role of judges in protecting the weak, vulnerable and infirm is of ever increasing importance. In one case that proves the point, the High Court stepped in to set aside land transfers made by an elderly farmer with dementia in the years before his death. The farmer was well into his 80s when he gave his land holdings to two of his sons. The gifts, which were expressed to reflect natural love and affection, included the home that he occupied with his wife. She was...
