Cohabitation Disputes

In the unfortunate event of your relationship breaking down, or your choosing to no longer live with your partner, our expert team of cohabitation solicitors are at hand to settle any cohabitation disputes that may arise from these circumstances.

What is Cohabitation?

Cohabitation refers to two or more parties choosing to live together without being married. Whilst the vast majority of this rising household trend consists of unmarried couples, cohabitation also includes:

  • Friends who live together
  • Adult family members who choose to live together
  • Business associates who co-own a property
