High Court Focuses on Essentials to Resolve Family Trust Dispute

17th April, 2018 By Alireza Nurbakhsh

Even the most careful drafting cannot always succeed in dispelling ambiguity or in making provision for all future eventualities. As a High Court case concerning a family trust showed, however, the courts are always there to act as a neutral umpire in resolving otherwise intractable disputes. A successful businessman had, by a 1925 indenture, established a substantial trust fund for the benefit of his only daughter. After she died childless, the fund passed to her uncle's 13 children. One of the 13 had two sons, Jeffery and David, both deceased....

Reliance on Accountant Shows Reasonable Care

12th April, 2018 By Alireza Nurbakhsh

If you rely on your accountant's advice regarding a tax issue, HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) will now regard you as having taken 'reasonable care' to get things right and will not impose a penalty. On 14 February, HMRC issued new guidance relating to the penalties regime for failure to take reasonable care in making tax returns. It states that if you have 'used a tax adviser with the appropriate expertise, HMRC would normally consider this as having taken reasonable care' unless you do not give them 'accurate and complete...

Premature Contract Signature Proves Expensive

9th April, 2018 By Alireza Nurbakhsh

Signing a contract before you are sure you are willing to complete it can be a huge mistake: judges do not flinch from enforcing valid contracts, as a recent case shows. It involved a man who reneged on a deal to buy a family home for £5 million. He had not viewed the property before contracts were exchanged and had dealt with the vendors through an intermediary whom he had never previously met. However, he had signed the contract in person and a judge rejected claims that the intermediary had...

Direct Contact With Both Parents Best Promotes Child Welfare

6th April, 2018 By Alireza Nurbakhsh

Family judges know that children normally do best when they have direct contact with both parents. The Court of Appeal underlined that point in a case concerning five ultra-Orthodox Jewish children whose transgender father had been ostracised by the close community in which they lived. After the father left the family home and began life as a woman, both parents agreed that the children, aged between three and 13, should remain living within the Charedi community in which they were brought up. However, purely because she was transgender, members of...
