Property Division

  • Property division is an important aspect of family law, and yet it is often overlooked when signing agreements that affect it. In relation to family law, property law is more than an area in itself – it is closely tied to divorce law, civil partnerships, and pre and post nuptial agreements. Many questions of property family law fall under this area, and Sterling Law’s expertise covers all of them.
  • One of the most common areas of property law that is asked about is: what happens to the house during a divorce? In reality, there is no simple answer. Sometimes, one person will keep the house. Sometimes, the house is sold and split, whether equally or unequally. Sterling Law knows this can be frustrating, and that complex problems often can’t be plastered over by a simple solution. Sterling Law can help to create a customised, legal agreement between you and your partner as to what to do with your important assets during a separation – such as delaying the sale of your house until a later date, or even when entering a marriage, designing a pre-nuptial agreement for you.
  • Post-nuptial agreements are also an option – if you and your partner decide that property in the marriage should be set out more clearly, our team will help you create an agreement

Pre-Nuptial Agreements

  • Historically, Pre-Nuptial agreements were not often looked at by courts, which meant a significant amount of autonomy in marriages and civil partnerships was lost. In recent years, however, courts have started to consider pre-nuptial agreements more and more, and they are a viable and useful way of protecting your and your partner’s interests in and after marriage.

    EPC contracts 28.06.2021

    We have reviewed the EPC contract and provided a legal opinion on force majeure clauses (re Covid-19) and its implications.
    Engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning (EPC) contracts are the most common form of contract used to undertake construction works by the private sector on large-scale and complex infrastructure projects. Under an EPC contract, a contractor is obliged to deliver a complete facility to a developer who needs only turn a key to start operating the facility, hence EPCC contracts are sometimes called turnkey construction contracts.

    In the recent case of Topadar v Secretary of State for the Home Department [2020] EWCA Civ 1525 the Court of Appeal examined two questions:

    At what point is an immigration application decided by the Home Office?
    Is it procedurally unfair for the Home Office to refuse an application due to the applicant’s sponsor (i.e. their employer) failing to provide additional information (without the applicant ever being made aware of the request)? 

    The Court of Appeal decided:
