Kingsley and others v Kinglsey and another

Partnership – Dissolution. The proceedings related to a claim by the deceased's wife, her sister and the executors of the deceased's estate, for among other things, the sale of farm land that had been farmed under a partnership between the deceased and his first defendant sister. The Chancery Division held, among other things, that, rather than sell the farm land on the open market pursuant to the Trusts of Land and Appointment of Trustees Act 1996, it would exercise its discretion and make an order permitting the first defendant a period of two months to complete the purchase of the farm land based on the price of £3,245,000.
