Wai Ming Trading Ltd v Poon Tang Fat

In Wai Ming Trading Ltd v Poon Tang Fat ([2012] HKEC 146) W owned 11 / 12 and P owned 1 / 12 of a plot of land. P had assured W that he would sell the 1/12 share to W and, on the strength of that, W had acquired the interests of the other former owners. P later decided not to sell. W now sought an order for sale and P resisted. W was successful; partition was not practicable and there was nothing to indicate that the interests of the co-owners would be better served by continuing the co-ownership. There was no evidence that the sale would impose any hardship on P. The agreement was another relevant factor.
