LawRight helps Jeffrey settle property matter

Jeffrey and his wife were getting older but didn’t own their own home, so they gave $96,000 to their son and daughter-in-law to help them buy a property, on the understanding that Jeffrey and his wife would be allowed to live there for the rest of their life.

But when Jeffrey’s son passed away, his daughter-in-law sold the property and evicted Jeffrey and his wife. They applied for a declaration that they had an equitable interest in the property. Sadly, Jeffrey’s wife passed away soon after proceedings commenced and Jeffrey sought our help to progress the matter.

We helped Jeffrey to draft his pleadings, comply with his disclosure obligations and make an offer to settle the dispute. Jeffrey and his daughter-in-law reached a settlement.

With LawRight’s help, Jeffrey could participate in the justice system and get secure housing again.
