The harsh reality of cohabiting

28 November 2017
8.30am to 9.30am
GA Solicitors, 25 Lockyer Street, PL1 2QW, Plymouth

Cohabiting couples are the fastest growing family type in the UK. Yet despite this, there is still little or no legal protection for cohabitants should they separate.


Buying a house is a big commitment for a couple. There are a lot of things to take into account and although it might not be at the top of the list, it's also important to think, what if it doesn't work out?

Many unmarried couples are living together while still believing there is such a thing as common-law marriage in this country and that as a result they have rights - there isn't and they don't. This is being highlighted this November by national organisationResolution

With this in mind, GA Solicitors' family team has organised an informative seminar to shed some light on what cohabitation entails and what the best way is to avoid future problems. Topics for discussion will include:

  • Property disputes upon relationship breakdown
  • Financial provision
  • How to avoid complex and costly disputes upon relationship breakdown
  • Cohabitation agreements

This information might be useful to you or your clients if you are involved in the property industry.
