... There is no such thing! 

It is worrying that The National Centre for Social Research has published figures today which show that almost half of people asked mistakenly believed that common law marriage exists. 

There are very few rights available for cohabitees and it is concerning that people who are living together may not realise this. There is clearly urgent need for reform in this area but whilst we wait for changes in the law, it is important that cohabitees take advice to understand their position. 

If you are living with your partner and are not clear on your rights, please do get in touch:
