Fowler v Barron

[2008] EWCA Civ 377

Case summary last updated at 08/01/2020 15:09 by the Oxbridge Notes in-house law team.

Judgement for the case Fowler v Barron

 B had made the vast majority of payments towards a house that was in both his and F’s name and therefore attempted to overturn the presumption that joint ownership means a 50-50 share in the property. CA denied this, emphasising how heavy the presumptions set out in Stack v Dowden are. Unlike in Stack, F and B pooled all their assets and it takes more than merely the majority of financial contribution to overturn the presumption.
