Rebecca deals with:
Cohabitation / TOLATA
- Preparing cohabitation agreements
- Preparing Declarations of Trust
- Assisting if a dispute arises between a separating unmarried couple on the division of their assets.
Rebecca says: “Due to my background in dealing with brain injured clients, those who have suffered a medical complication and those families who have lost a loved one, I am able to empathise with clients and put them at ease during what can often be a difficult or daunting time in their life. I explain difficult legal issues in plain English and in a way that clients can understand.
“Unmarried couples often mistakenly think that they have the same rights as married couples. When unmarried couples separate, they often own a home together and/or have children, and disputes commence when couples cannot agree on how to split their property assets and income. This can get very complicated, and often a solicitor will be needed to help bring about a resolution.
If an unmarried couple buy a home together, we recommend taking out a Cohabitation Agreement, which is an uncomplicated way of making sure both parties know where they stand, should they separate.”
