This new, fully updated fourth edition of Cohabitants and the Law focuses on the recommendations of the UK's Law Commission's Report on Cohabitation. It provides a wealth of information on important issues affecting cohabitants, such as cohabitation agreements, disputes relating to children, the family home, and poverty. Valuable UK precedents are also provided, including a framework cohabitation agreement and a declaration of trust for co-owners of freehold property. The book discusses the UK legislative developments that have occurred since publication of the previous edition, including the Domestic Violence Act, the Adoption and Children Act 2002, the Land Registration Act 2002, and Civil Partnerships Act 2004. Additionally, it looks at various case law developments in relation to constructive trusts, financial provision, human rights in context of discrimination, and divorce settlements where periods of cohabitation are now taken into account.
