Choosing to live with your partner before marriage or civil partnership has become increasingly common. However, some couples are unaware of their lack of legal protection in the event of disagreements over shared property.
Cohabitation property disputes can be very difficult situations to unravel — especially when significant wealth is a factor. In many cases, considerable historical evidence may need to be gathered to establish ownership.
Lowry Legal can help to simplify cohabitation issues and clearly explain your options. As specialist family lawyers, we have a track record of finding the best approach for our clients.
How Lowry Legal Can Help with Cohabitation Issues
The first step with property disputes is to help you determine and understand how you legally own your property. This may be as a joint tenant or as a tenant in common.
One of our priorities will be to work through cohabitation issues and guide you towards a settlement with your co-owner as smoothly and efficiently as possible.
We can also help you establish guidelines and boundaries with a prospective co-owner when you are purchasing a property by way of a cohabitation agreement.
