Cohabitation

If you are considering moving in with your partner then it is always a good idea to think carefully about what the financial arrangements are going to be. Key factors such as who is going to pay what and why, how the property is going to be owned, whether it is going to be in joint names or just one party’s name and if it is just in one party’s name will the other party ever acquire an interest in it need to be considered.

Thinking about all of these things before embarking on the next stage of your relationship can avoid real difficulties, heartache and not to mention excessive legal costs should the relationship breakdown.

At Morecrofts, our specialist family team can advise and assist you and your partner to draw up a co-habitation agreement. We work in tandem with our property team to ensure the process of buying a house and making financial arrangements are as simple as possible leaving you and your partner free from worry and able to enjoy your new home.

We understand how worrying legal costs can be so have a range of payment options available to suit your budget and needs. We offer fixed fee packages alongside our traditional fee system and we work with you to decide which is best for you and your family. We will assess whether you are eligible for legal aid and, as we have a contract with the Legal Aid Agency, we can grant legal aid immediately if necessary.
