Jones v Kernott  EWCA Civ 578;  WLR (D) 13
“Where the parties had agreed when they separated that they had equal interests in a residential property conveyed into their joint names there had to be something to displace those interests before the court could impute from the parties’ conduct an intention to vary that equality. The passage of time was insufficient to do so even if in the meantime the defendant had acquired alternative accommodation and the claimant had paid all the outgoings.”
