Cohabitation Disputes

There has been a big increase in the number of couples who choose to live together prior to or instead of marriage or civil partnership. Many cohabitees are choosing to buy a property together to get on the property ladder.

There is a common misconception that cohabitees have the same rights as married couples or civil partners under common law. This is simply not the case, and the law for cohabitees is in fact very different from that for divorcing couples or dissolutions of civil partnerships.

Unfortunately, some relationships do break down, and if you are not married or in a civil partnership, then it can be difficult to unravel the threads of your life together.

Our specialist family law team can advise you on the following areas:

  • Cohabitation agreements.
  • Protecting interests in a property
  • Occupation of a property following relationship breakdown
  • Recovering a financial interest in a property upon relationship breakdown.
