Cohabiting or Unmarried Couples

Whether you see living together, or Cohabitation, as an alternative to marriage or as a temporary arrangement, it’s important to understand your legal rights and responsibilities.

The current UK Law does not offer the same protection for unmarried cohabitation as it does for married couples.

If you separate, the division of assets can be legally complicated if the ownership of property, and details of your financial and property affairs, have not been properly recorded.

In these complex cases, EMG Solicitors provide sensible, in depth legal advice on a range of issues including Property, Wills and Children.
