Cobbe v Yeoman's Row Limited [2005] EWHC 266; [2006] 1 W.L.R. 2964 and House of Lords (judgment pending)

DATE: 01 Jan 2005

Myriam Stacey appeared
on behalf of the claimant property developer in the High Court, Court of Appeal
and House of Lords. The claim was founded on proprietary estoppel claim and
arose in the context of pre-contractual negotiations for the
sale, purchase and development of a block of flats in Knightsbridge. The
claim raised issues of proprietary estoppel, constructive trust, the question
and extent of appropriate equitable relief and the ambit and extent of section
2(5) of the LPA(MP) Act 1989. The
claimant was awarded a half share of the increase in value of a property after
planning permission was granted.
