The law relating to unmarried couples can be very complex, particularly in relation to property. In some circumstances you may have an interest in property even if you are not the registered legal owner. If you are thinking of living together with your partner, or if you are already doing so, you may wish to consider speaking to us to ensure you have protected yourself in the event that the relationship breaks down.
If necessary we can draft a Cohabitation Agreement (similar to a Prenuptial Agreement but for un-married couples) setting out the legal and financial principles should the relationship break down. We can also offer you advice and assistance as to your legal rights if you separate. Please contact us to arrange a free initial appointment or get started online here.
*please note that we are not qualified to give tax advice but can work together with you and your financial advisor to consider any tax issues which may be applicable to your circumstances.
