Living Together

At Birkett Long, we like helping people sort out the more mundane (but important!) parts of life. Our friendly and accessible lawyers can guide you through important decisions and documents such as wills, cohabitee agreements, premarital or pre-civil partnership agreements and the process of buying or renting your home.

If you’re living with someone, it’s vital you get your affairs in order to make sure your future, and that of your loved ones, pans out in accordance with your wishes. You might need to think about the following:

  • Are there children from previous relationships to consider?
  • Have you got a will? Does it need updating now you’re living with someone?
  • Do you need an agreement about how much money each partner is putting into a house purchase?
  • Do you want to protect your assets for the future?
  • Are you buying or renting a house together?
  • Are you assisting your child with a deposit?
  • Do you want to protect your partner’s and/or children’s inheritance?

If you want to find out more about the different things you need to consider when living together, contact us now for a no obligation, free chat on the phone.

We offer specialist legal advice to those who are thinking about moving in together, are already living together or looking to protect their assets going into a new relationship.

Our team includes members of the Law Society’s specialist Family Law and Children Panels, meaning we are committed to providing our clients with advice which is personally tailored, proactive and prompt.

What our clients say

  • The preparation of wills for my wife and I was very efficient, everything clearly explained and advice given to save potential tax charges.
  • Thank you for all the work you have carried out for us; we feel very assured that we had you to take us through the myriad of paperwork in such a professional and friendly manner. We would certainly recommend you to any of our friends who are contemplating making wills and lasting powers of attorney.
  • I was very impressed. They have broken the old fashioned solicitors image by making themselves available and responding quickly to email, very efficient overall.
