Cohabiting - When a Relationship Breaks Down

With more people choosing to live together without getting married than ever before, we are often asked to provide advice when these relationships breakdown.

Practical steps for Cohabiting Couples - Knowing your rights.

Many people think that unmarried couples have the same rights as married couples under “common law” following a substantive period of cohabitation. This is a myth and cohabiting couples do not have the same rights as married couples, the position is very different.

Considering Cohabitation - Stop, Think!

It is very important if you are unmarried to think about your financial position very carefully when purchasing a property with a partner or when you take the decision to move in together.

Common Issues for Cohabiting Couples

Cohabiting Couples are now the fastest growing household in the UK, but despite this, the law in England and Wales does not currently provide protection for unmarried couples.
