Introduction
Legal Issues in the Caunce and Tizard Cases
The Decisions in the Caunce and Tizard Cases
Conclusion

From the Paper:

"The legal issue in the Caunce1 case is whether the bank has priority over the wife's equitable interest in the house, owned and occupied by her and her husband at the time the mortgages were taken out. Since then the husband had left her, was she entitled to stay in the house even though it wasn't registered in her name? The legal issue that arises in the Tizard2 case is whether the land charge registered by the plaintiff (Kingsnorth Finance) "was subject to or could override the equitable interest, if any, of the wife" (Kingsnorth Finance v Tizard [1986] 1 WLR 783). Another issue was whether the wife was in actual occupation of the property, as the surveyor had noted that there was occupation by the husband and the children and the husband told the surveyor that his wife "had left many months ago" (Kingsnorth Finance v Tizard [1986] 1 WLR 783)."
