cohabitation

If you are moving in with your partner or maybe buying your first home together, it is important to know that unmarried couples living together are not protected by law in the same way as married couples or civil partners.

You may need to consider issues such as how a property is bought and subsequently funded, what arrangements you would wish to make for your children in the event that the relationship breaks down, having a written agreement as to who is your ‘next-of-kin,’ what is your tax position, should you have a joint bank account, should you make a will and is it a good idea to have a living together agreement of a cohabitation agreement?

Unfortunately, many couples do not take legal advice until things go wrong by which time it may be too late to mend the damage.

We can tailor any agreement to suit your particular circumstances and ensure that your interests are protected.
