I had a rich relative who gave me a roof-top sea-side apartment. I got married a few years ago and am now thinking of divorcing. The apartment is registered in my name only. Would my husband be entitled to part of this ?By: דיאנה שאלתיאל•Published on: 12 May, 2022
Property received as a gift is one of the exceptions to the rule under the 1973 Spouses’ Property Relations Act that property acquired during the course of a marriage is joint property to be balanced out between the sides upon divorce. Thus a husband whose wife was given an apartment would have no legal claim on it should they divorce and it would remain the wife’s exclusive property.
