It may be of passing interest to note the recent Court of Appeal decision in Pahkhania v Chandegra [2012] ECWA CIV 1438.

A and B purchased a property jointly and there was an express declaration that they held it as tenants in common in equal shares. B made no financial or other contribution and ordinarily the whole property would have been treated as held on a resulting trust for A. However the Court of Appeal said that an express declaration of trust is conclusive and trumps any implied, resulting or constructive trust.
