Cohabitation Solicitors

In these fast-changing times, it’s increasingly common for people to live together without a formal agreement. This could prove to be risky if the relationship breaks down. Lowry Legal’s cohabitation lawyers can help you to set out what happens if things change, or a dispute arises.

Our Cohabitation Advice Services

Whether you’re looking to formalise a living arrangement in writing, or need advice about a dispute, it’s essential to find experienced cohabitation lawyers. Lowry Legal specialises in relationships involving significant wealth, offering cohabitation advice that can address even the most challenging scenarios. Here are the services we offer:

Cohabitation Agreements

Many couples assume that they share the same rights as people who have either married or formed a civil union. Some only realise that this is not the case when the relationship changes. Our cohabitation solicitors can help you to create, or amend, an agreement, ensuring that your interests are protected.

Cohabitation Disputes

When an informal living arrangement becomes strained, the situation can quickly become challenging for all parties. Lowry Legal’s cohabitation lawyers specialise in high net worth relationships, so we’re perfectly placed to offer guidance that can resolve your dispute and help you move forward.

Plan For the Future with Our Cohabitation Lawyers

It’s become increasingly common for unmarried couples to share a home together and split bills in a way that suits both parties. While this type of informal arrangement can work well, there are some notable risks. The main drawback of this approach is that, should the relationship become strained or break down, neither person would be guaranteed the same security as a married couple or those in a civil partnership. This can lead to complex — and costly— disputes down the line.

Lowry Legal’s cohabitation solicitors can help you to formalise an agreement that clearly explains the likes of home ownership, personal debts, and contributions. This kind of arrangement offers improved clarity and extra peace of mind for the future. If you’re already embroiled in a dispute, we can help you to establish ownership and simplify your options.

Our skilled team is experienced in highly complex, high net worth relationships. This means we’re perfectly placed to provide the guidance you need, when you need it.
