Occupational Rent Law and Legal Definition
In a matrimonial case, or a dispute between joint tenants of a residential property, one may be able to force the ouster of the other and gain exclusive occupation of the residence, forcing the other to acquire alternative residential premises, and seeking compensation for the benefit to the ousting party of not having to do so.
Occupational rent is a claim founded upon the notion that an equal division would be inequitable because one spouse has had the benefit of occupation while the other has had, of necessity, to pay for alternate accommodation. It is the sort of claim that will succeed if the claiming spouse has been denied possession or forced to vacate the matrimonial home, or if the spouse in possession is seeking to offset, in the distribution of its value, expenditures made to maintain the property since the time of separation.
