This update on Singapore law addresses three developments. First, the question of whether resulting trustees are subjected to fiduciary duties and if so, when, as considered by the Singapore Court of Appeal. Second, the controversial question of the susceptibility of co-owned property held under joint tenancies to execution for judgment debts is revived as a matter of Singapore law. Finally, developments in the doctrine of part performance, in particular its apparent extension outside of circumventing noncompliance with formalities for certain contracts, are considered.
