About the Webinar

In the absence of standing to bring a family provision claim, reliance on proprietary estoppel may be a potential option for those who feel let down by the representations of a will - maker about testamentary intentions. This session will examine the key elements of a successful estoppel claim and recent cases, including:

  • Who is able to bring a claim of promissory estoppel?
  • What evidence is required to found a claim? How can a promise be proved?
  • What degree of reliance on the promise must be shown?
  • Does there need to be detriment on the part of the promisee and to what extent?
  • What orders will the court make?
  • When will compensation be awarded rather than specific performance?
  • Cases including Stone v Kramer [2021] NSWSC 1456; Harris v Harris [2021] VSCA 138; Moore v Aubusson [2020] NSWSC 1466
