Legal-Ease: ‘Unjust enrichment’ recovers benefits provided to others

Unjust enrichment is a legal method that may be used to force someone to pay for a benefit they have received from another person or business. Three things must be present for unjust enrichment to occur: the person must have actually benefitted from the goods, the person must know they have benefitted and the item they’ve received must be something that is unfair for them to keep.
