How have the courts in BC considered the value of a husband’s home when the wife entered into joint tenancy with the husband?

British Columbia, Canada

The following excerpt is from McManus v McManus, 2019 BCSC 123 (CanLII):

In Venables v. Venables, 2018 BCSC 1736, Justice Marchand took the same approach and found none of the value of the husband’s home at the time the relationship began, which he transferred into joint tenancy late in the marriage, was excluded. Again based on a “fact-specific inquiry”, he concluded the husband intended to gift the wife an interest in the home and found the whole of it to be family property.
