It is probable that your interests in property could be the most valuable assets you and your partner (married or otherwise) own. What happens to property on death or separation is not necessarily logical or common sense and is quite easy for there to be undesirable results.
When buying a property in your sole name or together with a partner, or if you plan to start living with your partner, it is important to get advice about the implications for your property and to make sure that the technical legal issues relating to ownership, property rights and your intentions are documented properly in a declaration of trust and a cohabitation agreement.
For more details about declarations of trust please contact a member of Raworths family law team.
