When a loved one or friend passes away, this can be a very stressful and emotional time. Dealing with the wishes of the person who has passed away will be a priority and where there may be uncertainty or disputes as what those wishes were this can add to an already difficult time.
Making the decision to move in together is a big step in your relationship, a time for celebration and making plans for the future. But does your legal position change?
The law currently gives you more rights when you are married or enter into a civil partnership than as cohabitees. One important legal consequence of being married is that you have matrimonial home rights which means that you have the right to live in a property that is owned in your spouse’s name and that right can be registered at the Land Registry to notify any potential purchaser and protect your claim against the property on divorce.
