An increasing number of couples choose to live together without becoming married and the application of the law in relation to property and finance is quite different to that of a married couple.

The status of “common law” husband and wife does not exist at law. Either the relationship is a married one or an unmarried one. There is no in between. Currently, an unmarried person may be placed at a significant disadvantage, particularly in respect of financial matters and property rights, compared to a married person.

The law relating to financial matters upon the breakdown of an unmarried relationship is complex. We have the expertise and experience to find the right solution in your case and to ensure your rights and entitlements are adequately protected and achieved.

You may wish to consider prenuptial or co-habitation contracts. We have considerable experience in this specialised area and can advise on and draft such agreements.

Where there is a property dispute we will advise you upon applications under the Trusts of Land and Appointment of Trustees Act. If there are children, then consideration needs to be given to making an application under the Children Act for a lump sum and/or property adjustment for the benefit of the child.
