This seminar is for any professionals who advise individuals about their personal and family wealth, and its protection; and the impact that separation from a “cohabitant” can have.

We will discuss:

• who, or what, is a cohabitant?
• where you are cohabiting (Curiously, you don’t need to have been cohabiting in Scotland to be able to bring a cohabitant’s rights claim in Scotland);
• time limits;
• cohabitants’ rights and claims on separation;
• is a cohabitation agreement worth it and what should it cover?
• cohabitant’s rights claims on death.
