Relationship Property Issues for Older Clients

Relationship Property Issues for Older Clients
Add to CPD Planner


Social and demographic changes over the last few decades have meant there are now more relationships between people aged over 55. With the likely mix of separate and relationship property, plus adult children and extended families, there can be tricky issues when these relationships break down. Practitioners need to understand these complexities and have a range of workable options to offer older clients.

This webinar will take a practical approach in considering some of the key issues that can arise in separation cases when older clients are involved.

Topics covered will include:

  • Capacity
  • Classification of property
  • Exception to equal sharing (s 13) applications
  • Rest home subsidies
  • Determination of relationship status
  • Enduring Powers of Attorney
  • Conflict of interest
  • Pre-nups and mid-nups
  • Separating joint tenancy.

Learning objectives

After this webinar you will have:

  • Greater confidence in identifying relationship property issues for older clients.
  • Key strategies for navigating the range of circumstances older clients may present.

Who should attend

All family lawyers and property lawyers dealing with older clients.
