Bagum v Hafiz and Another: CA 22 Jul 2015

The land owner appealed from an order of the court as to land held under a co-ownership arrangement between three people. The order was for the sale of the property with the first option being given for the purchase of the property. It was said that the court had no jurisdiction to make such an order under the 1996 Act.
Held: The judge had been correct to make the order and it was within the wide discretion given by the Act.
