In this episode, Philip Barton examines Co-ownership Disputes. He commences with severance of joint tenancy and adverse possession between co-owners.  However, he focuses primarily on Part 4 of the Property Law Act which covers sale and division of co-owned land and goods. He covers central concepts, VCAT’s jurisdiction, grounds for refusing an order - in particular grounds based on contracts and trusts inconsistent with sale, aspects of orders for sale or physical division, and the jurisdiction of the Supreme Court and County Court.
