Pre-nuptial Agreements & Co-habitation Agreements
Following the introduction of the Family Law (Scotland) Act 2006 certain rights are granted to couples who are living together but are not married or in a civil partnership. If this applies to you then you may wish to consider putting in place an Agreement to identify any issues that may affect your relationship, for example if one of you has contributed more to the purchase price of a property in which you live. These types of Agreements will be taken into account if you were ever to split. This is an issue which people find difficult to address and you certainly do not wish to take the bloom off a new relationship by suggesting that there could be a split, but it is better to be prepared in case such a situation does arise rather than go down the route of a messy split.
“Communication was very clear and responsive at all times and we signed our documents via a video conference call. Being able to proceed with key legal matters was very reassuring. All round a very positive experience in difficult times.”

I should have sent an email earlier to thank you for all your work to make sure the settlement went through for the house (at both ends!) – we never met you in person but we both thought you were super efficient and we’re very grateful for your painstaking work on making sure that everything went through – as well as answering our emails quickly and reassuring us that all was well. It really is a great service that you provide.
Thank you very much for the summary and the prompt conclusion of the conveyancing. It’s been the most straightforward property transaction I’ve ever experienced, THANK YOU!
I am very pleased with the service you provided, always kind caring and professional. Many thanks again for everything, if I need to get in touch in the future I’ll let you know.

Dear Pauline, thank you so much for your help and support over this last year and a half. You have been so kind and understanding at the most difficult time of my life. I really don’t think I would have coped without your help and friendship.
