We are common law man and wife. Do I still need a Will?
23rd May 2014

Unfortunately there is a common misconception that by virtue of living together for a specific period of time co-habiting couples can acquire rights over each others property similar to those of married couples/registered civil partners so in this regard there is no such legal concept as common law man and wife.

The only way for co-habiting couples to adequately provide for one another on death is to make a valid will setting out specifically the assets to be left to a survivor.
