Successful win after 3 day Trial in High Court

Case Study

What happened: Blackstone Solicitors represented the Claimant in a claim for a declaration as to the ownership of a freehold interest in a property owned by the Claimant. The arguments raised by the Claimant were that she had been fraudulently deceived by the First Defendant as to the nature of the documents she signed, which resulted in the transfer of her only property and home to the First Defendant. The Claimant sought rectification of the ownership at the land registry and an order for possession.

Outcome: Blackstone Solicitors were successful in the entire claim and obtained indemnity costs against the First Defendant
