Iqbal v Ahmed [2011] EWCA Civ 900 (29 July 2011)

This case is interesting for its use of the dicta in Miller in an Inheritance Act context. The CA upheld a first instance judgment conferring on a widow the right to occupy the home for life and half the proceeds of sale (the other half being held by her step son), the whole of the residuary estate and the agreement of the step son to pay half the insurance and the structural repairs of the property in substitution for the sum of £8,000 and the right to occupy the former matrimonial home left to her by her husband.
