Paul v Constance (1977 UKCA)
CERTAINTY OF INTENTION: WM had entered into a new relationship with Ms P. They lived together but didn't get married. WM received damages from a work injury, and the couple decided to put it into a bank account. At the interview with the bank manager, it came out that they weren't married, and manager created an account in WM's name only. Shared bingo winnings were deposited, and only one withdrawal was made for both their benefit. When WM died intestate, the estranged wife tried to claim it was part of the estate and should go to her. Held: The conduct of WM and Ms Paul was sufficient evidence to infer the intention to create a trust for WM and Ms P jointly. PRINCIPLE: A TRUST CAN BE INFERRED FROM CONDUCT.
