Advice for your relationship
Because there is no such thing as 'common law husband or wife' our solicitors can provide expert advice on the legal rights of unmarried couples planning to live together or separate.
At Giles Wilson, we can provide you with advice on the financial and other legal implications of living together as an unmarried couple – such as tax, wills and inheritance advice. We can also draft cohabitation agreements, providing advice on how to tie these in with future wills and deeds of trust for jointly owned property.
And if you are planning to separate, we can give you advice on your rights, with particular regard to how it affects your children, finances and property. These include cases under the Trusts of Land and Appointment of Trustees Act 1996, as well as claims regarding property for resulting constructive trusts and proprietary estoppel.
