Cohabitation

In today’s world, more and more people live together outside of marriage but few understand the legalities involved in such a relationship.

The breakdown of a relationship can be a time of great uncertainty and so you might want to minimise the opportunities for expensive disputes about the ownership of your property, belongings, savings and investments and whether these might be shared.

Hethertons’ team of expert family lawyers will help you agree the terms upon which you enter into your relationship and what should happen if that relationship breaks down.

We help you protect your assets and advise you how to share the ownership of property with your partner.

For further information please contact Simon Nellar on 01904 528383 or email sfn@hethertons.co.uk.
