The Plaintiff sought payment of arrears and interest, and a declaration that a property was beneficially owned by the Bank under a resulting trust, an order for possession, and costs.

The parties were a married couple who divorced five years prior to the commencement of this suit. The Plaintiff alleged that, relying on expressly fraudulent misrepresentations made by the Defendant to her about joint ownership, she made personal contribution to the purchase of the freehold; the construction of the two houses thereon; was co-signatory to and assigned her salary to the loan by which the freehold was acquired; and maintained the houses over decades, including making them habitable after the ravages of hurricanes.
