COHABITATION - WHAT ARE YOUR RIGHTS?

26 March 2015

There has been a stark increase in the number of people living together or ‘cohabiting' outside of marriage or civil partnership. This can be for a variety of personal, social or economic reasons. There are a number of myths in this area in that often people assume that they hold the same legal rights as a married couple, commonly referred to as ‘common law spouse'. Often people do not seek legal advice in relation to property rights until there are difficulties in their relationship.

The Law Society of Northern Ireland has released a very helpful leaflet to assist in this area in order to provide practical advice to couples in this situation.
