In what meanings are the words in violet used in these sentences?

1-Thus, it is usually irrelevant whose name is on the rent book or lease, for the court can simply override that and transfer the tenancy as it thinks fit.

2-The mother in Pv T(2003) was awarded maintenance for her child which took into account her needs as the primary carer

3-Financial claims for the children are not just limited to income; claims can also be made for lumb sums and even fro transfers of property.

Thanx in advance

Hi, Elida

The only violet I saw was in the first sentence.

In what meanings are the words in violet used in these sentences?

1-Thus, it is usually irrelevant whose name is on the rent book or lease, for the court can simply override that and transfer the tenancy as it thinks fit.

To override is usually to formally (officially) change an existing condition or decision. The person or people doing this must have recognized responsibility and authority.

Think of a tennis game. A linesperson makes a call that the umpire (the person in charge) thinks is wrong. The linesperson said the ball is out (not good). But the umpire says the ball is in (good). The umpire changes the call. The tennis match proceeds accordingly. The umpire overrode the original call (decision of the linesperson).

lol..Nef...you're right. ok for the 1st sentece.

regarding the second...i wanted to know about "awarded"

regarding the third: lump sums

2-The mother in Pv T(2003) was awarded maintenance for her child which took into account her needs as the primary carer

The mother's status as the primary parent was recognized by the court. The court ruled that the mother should receive money to care for the child.

3-Financial claims for the children are not just limited to income; claims can also be made for lump sums and even fro (for?) transfers of property.

A lump sum is a payment that is made at one time. Because it is made only once, a lump sum may be relatively large. This is different from payments that are to be made at intervals (yearly, monthly, etc.).

the lump sum is a payment for what??
Your context doesn't make it clear. A lump sum is just a big amount of money paid at one time, usually covering the amount required for many smaller payments.
