Living together and buying property together are now commonplace. The only trouble is those involved often know little about what could happen if the relationship were to come to an end.
If you are thinking about moving in with your partner, or buying a property together, it is best you lay down plans to make sure that should things not go as hoped and the property and contents need to be divided, there’s an understanding of how that split would work.
While this may look like an unnecessary step, the truth is that prevention really is better than cure: looking after this too often forgotten step will save you an enormous amount of time and expense at an already testing and emotional time should the need arise to divide your property.
Like you, we hope that never happens but in the event that it does, getting things right now will ensure that each of you has the level of protection you need.
