Cohabitation Claims

Our Cohabitation Claims Expertise

Tanfield’s barristers are known for their sympathetic and pragmatic approach when advising clients in cohabitation claims, as well as their expert knowledge of trusts and family law.

Barristers at Tanfield act in both the family and civil courts in cohabitation disputes concerning unmarried couples and their families.

As well as claims under TOLATA and Schedule 1 of the Children Act in respect of the family home, members regularly deal with cases involving investment portfolios, foreign properties, business partnerships and formal trusts. They also advise on declarations of trust and on cohabitation agreements.

Chambers’ work on Cohabitation and Co-ownership is integrated into both its property and family work and contributes to its leading reputation in both fields.

Our Cohabitation Claims Clients

With a wealth of experience in representing unmarried couples, family members and children, Tanfield’s barristers are equally comfortable receiving instructions directly or through professional clients.
