I entered into an agreement with a close relative whereby I paid off debts she owed in return for her transferring rights to her home to me , except for one part where she would live. She now says the agreement was unfair, and that it is cancelled because I exploited her. She continues to live in all of the house and I am worried she may try to ‘sell’ it again. What legal action should take to enforce the agreement and protect my rights which have yet to be registered ?

Where a close relative attempts to cancel an agreement to transfer property rights it is possible to ask the family court to enforce the contract, and to :
·pass temporary or permanent orders ordering him/her to vacate the property, except for the part of the home to which he/she retains rights
·pass temporary or permanent orders to prevent him/her performing any legal deeds regarding it other than those required for the completion of the registration of the transfer of the property rights according to the agreement.
