Couples who live together are legally known as cohabitants. It is very important to recognise that cohabitants do not have the same legal rights as married couples and there is no such thing as a common law marriage.
Property rights relating to cohabitants can be very complicated. Couples who have lived together for many years may still not have any property rights and can be left in a very difficult situation if the relationship breaks down.
Cohabitation Agreements are recommended for couples who live together, setting out rights in relation to property and possessions.
Our family team have the expertise to advise you and prepare an agreement tailored to meet your individual requirements which will be legally enforceable in the event of your separation.
