If you are then please get legal advice as to your position. It may not be as you think it is. Where there is no marriage then one party can be severely prejudiced.
Paul Walters, Solicitor in Astle Paterson’s Family Department said “The above was borne out by the decision of The Court of Appeal on the 29th April 2015 in the case of Curran v Collins  EWCA Civ 404.
In this particular case the man and woman had spent about 30 years together in various properties. All of the properties were purchased in the man’s sole name.
When the relationship broke down the woman claimed that she had an interest therein. However, she failed before the Judge who dealt with the case initially and her subsequent appeal against the decision was dismissed.”
Paul concluded, “If there is a marriage then if the marriage breaks down the Court will do what is fair and reasonable. If there is no marriage then strict property laws apply.”
