Breakdown of Unmarried Relationships

Some couples prefer to live together in long term relationships while remaining unmarried.  The idea that there is such a thing as a ‘common-law’ husband or wife is merely a myth and in the event of separation the legal rights afforded to each party are very different from those given to married couples.

For those couples not getting married but setting up home together, a Co-habitation Agreement can be used. This records the agreement between the parties including the property, payment of the mortgage, outgoings, ownership of contents and much more.  It can be extremely useful in the event of a break up and Rowlinsons have vast expertise in dealing with Co-habitation Agreements. 

The law around unmarried breakups is especially complex if a co-habitation agreement is not signed, so speak to the Rowlinsons team today to receive friendly and specialist advice.
