Bagum v Hafiz and another [2015] EWCA Civ 801; [2015] WLR (D) 329

‘Sections 14 and 15 of the Trusts of Land and Appointment of Trustees Act 1996 conferred on the court a substantially wider discretion, exercised on the basis of wider considerations, than the trustees themselves enjoyed acting without either the beneficiaries’ consent or a court order. The court’s powers were there to enable the property to be dealt with justly when the beneficiaries could not agree and direct the trustees how to deal with the property.’
