Ghazaani v Rowshan

Trust and trustee – Constructive trust. The Chancery Division allowed the claimant's claim, in a dispute over the purported exchange of a property in Leeds with one in Tehran. The court held that the claimant had made out his case for a constructive trust and/or proprietary estoppel, and the appropriate relief was to put the parties in the position that they would have been if the contract had been concluded.
