Why should you buy Cohabitation: Law, Practice and Precedents

The numbers of unmarried cohabiting couples continue to increase, with the result that the law and practice relating to this area continues to grow insignificance for family and private client lawyers. This new edition of Cohabitation: Law Practice and Precedents has been extensively revised to take account of all procedural developments, as well as analysis of significant case-law.

Whether preparing a cohabitation contract or pre-nuptial agreement, drafting wills for cohabiting couples, advising on rights on the breakdown of a relationship or the death of a partner, or applying for a personal protection order or a parental responsibility agreement, practitioners will find authoritative analysis of the applicable law and expert guidance on procedural issues.

Cohabitation: Law, Practice and Precedents is the only work on the subject to provide commentary, checklists, procedural guides and precedents in a single volume making it an invaluable aid to all practitioners advising unmarried couples.

This new edition comes with a CD-ROM containing all the precedents covered in the volume.

Read extracts from this edition >>

 

"The aim is to assist practitioners when dealing with the particular requirements of those who are neither married nor in a civil partnership- it does just that, brilliantly ... as far as we know, it is the only work on the subject to provide commentary, checklists, procedural guides and precedents in a single volume making it an invaluable aid to all practitioners advising unmarried couples. That is what makes it such an invaluable reference for those advising at every aspect of a cohabitation relationship"  Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers and Phillip Taylor MBE, Head of Chambers and Reviews Editor, The Barrister.

"It is difficult for a busy family law practitioner to access cohabitation law quickly as there is no specific family law based remedy. This monster of a tome attempts to put all those resources together in one place ... useful table contrasting joint and sole name cases, indicative of the many useful summaries provided in other sections of this book" Graeme Fraser, Partner at Hunters

"comprehensive and clearly written content is easy to navigate ... procedural guides and checklists are essential tools ... will continue to be a prominent feature on my desk." Caitlin Jenkins, Mills & Reeve

"practitioners tasked with advising unmarried couples -- or those in a civil partnership -- on any, or all aspects of their lives, including relationships and finances, should acquire this book...it is to date, the only work specifically on cohabitation to combine informed and authoritative commentary with checklists, procedural guides and precedents, all in one single volume ... an essential purchase" Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers

"comprehensive and authoritative work on an area of human interaction which is gaining social prominence and legal importance ... the legal treatment of such relationships is frequently less clear than with those clients in formal unions, and this book distils that treatment into navigable chapters and sensible commentary which is both up-to-date and comprehensive, and in a manner which can be easily worked into a form a lay client will understand and appreciate ... the ‘Procedural Guides’ section provides readers with a mine of up-to-date information on a number of issues related to cohabitation, and must surely answer any question a practitioner new to this area may have. Similarly, the checklists and precedents (both non-contentious and contentious) bring together signposts and substantive documents, which are both user-friendly (a soft copy on CD) and invaluable" PS, Private Client Magazine, Law Society, September 2012, Issue 101

"There is all the armoury for practitioners to advise unmarried couples ... contains precedents for almost any situation" ALC Newsletter

“A very good buy ... not just for family lawyers" New Law Journal

"helpful ... 'clear and authoritative exposition of the law', ... it is both comprehensive in its range and thorough in its detail, succeeding in elucidating an often complex area of law and offering the busy practitioner a helpful guide to the procedures and practicalities involved" Journal of Social Welfare and Family Law

"From its first, pioneering, appearance nearly twenty years ago, Wood et al continues to raise its game through each successive edition ... a classic law book that it triumphs. Matters are clearly, logically and comprehensively described with helpful headings and sub-headings" CHRIS BARTON, Emeritus Professor of Family Law, Academic Door Tenant at Regent Chambers  and a Vice-President of the Family Mediators Association
