What is the 'burden of proof'?

In all cases, the burden of proof rests with the party who is not the legal owner. Where the property is purchased in the sole name of one of the cohabitants and there is no express declaration of trust, a Claimant must necessarily adduce convincing evidence establishing that they have some beneficial interest in the property. In legal terms, this claims a : constructive trust.
