Comparing to the other types of trust constructive trust is much controversial. Hence it does not require verbal or documentary expressions to create a trust. In this backdrop doctoring of constructive trust is taken as offensive and defensive weapon by legal practitioners in the area that issues relating to the transactions of property. It should be the responsibility of judiciary to evaluate the cases in a wide spectrum. Since judiciary precedence is conceded as souses of law and it impact to the adjudicating process to establish the justice.
