Most Common Misconceptions About Property Settlements

Property settlement after marital breakdown

The following are common misconceptions about property settlements:

  • equal division of property regardless of individual circumstances

  • the registered proprietor of an asset will have exclusive rights over the asset

  • the first person leaving the matrimonial home will be penalised financially

  • the division of property is based on whose "fault" it was that the marriage broke down

  • the parent residing with the children may occupy the home until the children of the marriage are 18 years old.
