Hi, thank you for your question. Please confirm if you were married and if the agreement was ratified by thr court?
How old are the children now?
Thanks for confirming. Given that there appears to have been a formal agreement, and the children are now adults, it would be for them to pursue a claim against him regarding the agreement and his previous intention to put the fields on trust. This can be done using form N1 and a £355 court fee to their local family court if no agreement is reached between them.

Thanks - it is clear from that screenshot that the specific land was to be transferred and held on trust and if this has not happened and there is risk of it being sold, then they would have good grounds to pursue an application to prevent the sale.
You may be liable for his legal fees and he woukd be at risk of their legal fees too. It will be helpful to send him a letter before claim first if they do not want to take the risk
That demonstrates that he had an intention to do this and in most disputes it is proof of intention that is required for the courts.
