Cohabitation

Cohabitation

We understand that if you are unmarried and your relationship breaks down you may be confused about the best way forward.

Our service, which is delivered by highly skilled lawyers, is based upon an informal and empathetic approach. We will be supportive and non-judgemental in our dealings with you.

Whether your relationship is a long-term intimate one, or simply a short-term living together arrangement, the law gives you no special rights. We will work hard to understand your individual circumstances, and offer advice that is most suitable to enable your wishes. We will consider the personal issues that you have, alongside legal concerns.

We can help you in drawing up a cohabitation agreement which will set out your entitlement to property owned jointly or solely between you both as an unmarried couple. 

We know that unmarried couples can often experience difficulties in resolving issues relating to jointly owned property when the relationship breaks down.

We can also help you in advising your entitlement where a cohabitation agreement has not already been entered into.

Additionally, we can also help you with any issues regarding children of the relationship, as the law does not distinguish between married and unmarried couples.

So, if you are living together, and thinking about a separation or cohabitation agreement, we are specialists and we can help you. 

Need some advice out of hours?

Our offices are staffed Monday - Friday, from 9am-5pm. However, if you need to talk to someone between 8am-10pm, 7 days a week, please call any of our office telephone numbers. We will be happy to help.

We understand that finding a solicitor that you feel understands your own specific situation can be a daunting task. So you can book a free consultation with us here.

We have also created a series of fixed-price consultation meetings with a full ‘no questions asked’ money-back guarantee promise.
