In contrast to England, applications for partition of land are still alive and well in the Caribbean, but for various reasons it can be difficult to obtain legal sources to provide guidance on the proper exercise of the power to partition. This paper assists by identifying principles according to which the jurisdiction could be exercised and assessing their suitability to the Caribbean.
