Relationship Breakdown

We understand that even if you are not married, when a relationship breaks down, it can be a difficult and stressful time. So many couples bring assets such as properties with them into a relationship and we are here to help you deal with the consequences of when a relationship comes to an end.

Our team of legal experts are dedicated to advising you on achieving an equitable resolution guiding you through the intricacies of asset division and property law.

Dealing with Relationship Breakdown

For couples that are not married, entitlement to xx can be particularly challenging. The crucial starting point in these situations is to identify whose names are on the deeds of the property. However, certain circumstances, such as if the property serves as the family home for your children or if you have contributed financially towards it, may entitle you to a claim over your partner’s property.

Given the complexity of this area of law, seeking professional legal advice is critical. Our team at Williamsons Solicitors offer reliable and empathetic assistance, ensuring you are fully informed about your legal standing and the best course of action moving forward.

What happens to shared property post-breakdown is a complex issue, particularly for couples who aren’t married and haven’t set up a living together agreement. The approach to division depends largely on how the property is owned. Our team of legal experts is dedicated to advising you on achieving an equitable resolution for both parties involved.

In situations where couples are not married, the division of household contents typically follows the principle that items belong to the individual who purchased them. While this rule might appear straightforward, its application can lead to disputes. Our solicitors can help mediate these disputes, aiming for amicable resolution that respects the contributions of both parties.
