Also in the case of Pettitt v Pettitt for about nine years, the appellant and her husband lived in a house which she had inherited. During that time, her husband carried out a number of improvements to the house. Subsequently, the house was sold and the appellant acquired a new house. After the new house had been paid for, there was a surplus of a few hundred pounds which the husband used (apparently with the appellant's consent) in paying for his car. The spouses lived in the house for four years before divorcing.The husband sought a declaration that he was beneficially interested in the proceeds from the sale of the house on the ground that, during those four years, he had carried out a considerable number of improvements to the house and garden. The husband's claim failed. In this case, the House of Lords explored the difficulties faced in determining the legal relationship affecting husbands and wives. The judges stated that “They do not as rules enter into contracts with one another so long as they are living together on good terms.” To apply to the case, They had sell the matrimonial home and Selena wants it to make it under writing but Elvis does not make an agreement through writing as it was based under consideration .
