Proprietary Estoppel Claims
Sometimes a person will make promises to another person during their lifetime. For example, someone may say “one day this will all be yours” and that person then relies on that promise. However, there are times when this promise is then not reflected in a person’s Will.
In these types of situation, a proprietary estoppel claim may be made. Broadly speaking, to bring a proprietary estoppel claim, a person must demonstrate that there was a promise made, that they relied on that promise and they suffered detriment or loss as a result of that promise.
These claims are often complex and our specialist lawyers are equipped to advise on these claims.
