The law relating to the ownership of the home, and the debates that surround it, are among the most intellectually rewarding in equity and trusts. They enable you to go to the heart of debates about British society, debates about the central organising principles of equity and trusts, and debates about the nature of law itself in its social context. The issues considered in this chapter relate to the ownership of the home in every situation except for the allocation of rights in the home after divorce. Whereas many of the issues relating to express trusts can appear to be technical and abstract, the issues relating to ownership of the home are easy to understand and vital (even if some of the legal models used to address them are not).
