Hussey v Palmer [1972] 1 WLR 1286

Mrs Hussey’s daughter and son-in-law (Mrs & Mr Palmer) invited her to move in with them. Mrs Hussey sold her house and paid £607 to have an extension built on the property of Mr & Mrs Palmer which was to be her bedroom. The relationship between the mother and daughter broke down and Mrs Hussey decided to move out. She then made a claim against Mr Palmer asserting a beneficial interest in the property based on a resulting trust.

Held: Mrs Hussey was entitled to a share in the beneficial interest in proportion to the £607 contributed.
