Cohabitation & Trusts of Land
‘Common law’ wives or husbands don’t have the same rights.
Many people decide not to marry and live together as ‘man and wife’ sometimes for short periods of time, but more often for years. When those relationships break down, the legal principles to be applied are not the same for those who are married.
When a relationship between a cohabiting couple breaks down it is essential to seek specialist advice to protect your position.
Furthermore, where financial provision and property issues are concerned, the law is very different to the situation where married or civil partners separate.
