Product description

Relationship property is a core feature of the law of domestic relationships. Major case law at the highest levels continues to develop the rules. It is now the subject of a mammoth Law Commission project. Some key areas such as economic disparity, the effect of trusts, and the rights of children are at stake. What should be the driving values and principles of any future law? Relationship Property in New Zealand examines key aspects of the law including latest developments from the courts such as the Supreme Court decision in Scott v Williams. It has a constant eye on the future and ways in which the law should be re-fashioned. The values that drive change are flagged. Judges, lawyers, academics, policy-makers and students alike should read this book.
