LawRight helps James settle property matter

James 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 James and his wife would be allowed to live there for the rest of their life.

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

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

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