Female law graduate wins half of ex-girlfriend’s £1.7m home

Shree Ladwa, an unemployed law graduate, has won half of the £1.7m home she lived in with her ex-girlfriend Beverley Chapman after claiming to have played the role of a “housewife” during the relationship. Ruling on the case, Judge Stephen Murch found that it was their “common intention” on buying the house that it would be jointly owned, rejecting Ms Chapman’s claim that she only transferred the house into joint names because of Ms Ladwa’s “undue influence”. The ruling means Ms Ladwa is entitled to a half share of the house and does not have to return a number of expensive gifts received during the 16-year relationship.
