In Gillian Fisher-Pollard v Piers Fisher-Pollard, a mother and son entered into a series of property transactions. At the time of the transactions the mother was suffering from the onset of dementia and grief from the death of her husband. The mother allegedly gifted a property to the son. The Court held that the conduct of the son in enticing the mother to gift the property was unconscionable, since the mother was suffering from a special disability by way of her profound grief and confused mental state. She also lacked independent legal advice.
