In this article Rhys Taylor considers whether a family loan, used to help parties purchase a matrimonial home, which is then secured by a charge registered at the Land Registry, might fall within s 24(1)(c). The article explores this possibility and the likely consequences if a court found such a  loan to be a nuptial settlement.
