Description Sen v Headley [1991] EWCA Civ 13 (28 February 1991) formulates requirements for deathbed gifts, incl. donation of land. From the view of Roman law, there are two other interesting aspects. Sen v Headley cites the Institutes of Justinian (Just. Inst. 2. 7. 1.) to show that deathbed gifts originate from mortis causa donationes. However, the value of the donation is not limited, thus application of Falcidian Portion (quarta Falcidia) is implicitly disabled.
