Co-habitation Agreements and Rights

Many people mistakenly believe that by living with their partner for a number of years they have a common law marriage that affords them some rights should the relationship break down. Legally speaking there is no such thing as a common law husband or wife, and this inaccurate belief could leave people unwittingly vulnerable should they decide to part ways.

If you live with a partner and have done so for some time, or you are planning to share a home with someone without getting married or entering a civil partnership, it might be wise to look into co-habitation agreements.
