An estimated three million unmarried couples cohabit in the UK, yet in contrast to their married counterparts, unmarried couples who live together do not have the same rights or obligations as a spouse or civil partner, regardless of how long they have lived together or whether they have children.

If you are not getting married but intend to live together, it is a good idea to make a Cohabitation agreement before you move in. Cohabitation agreements are becoming more popular and, when buying property together, a Declaration of Trust is indispensable.

We can advise you about the legal implications of moving in with your partner and how best to protect your interests, particularly in relation to property, with the aim to legal certainty and prevent any disputes in the future.
