Co-habitation or “Common Law” Partners are terms often used to describe two non-related people who live in the same property but do not have any form of legal registration of their relationship.
Couples who are married or in a civil partnership all have the same legal rights should the partnership breakdown, or in the event of death. However, there are no such rights in a “common law” partnership or for cohabiting couples, regardless of the length of your relationship.
Suppose you are moving in with your partner or currently cohabiting. In that case, you should ensure you are legally protected in case of a relationship breakdown or following the death of a partner or other party.
