Blog: Do you know someone living an urban myth? Warn them!

“We’ve lived together for ten years so my partner will inherit my estate…”

WRONG!

“Common Law Marriage” in England is a MYTH – there is no such thing under English law.

In black and white from the government:

“A SURVIVING PARTNER WHO WASN’T MARRIED OR IN A CIVIL PARTNERSHIP WITH THE DECEASED HAS NO AUTOMATIC RIGHT TO INHERIT.”

If you want your unmarried partner to inherit, you MUST write a Will.

Without a Will, long-term partners may inherit NOTHING.

If you know anyone in this situation, please tell them – it could save them from financial disaster.

Your local Just Wills & Legal Services Lt. consultant will help. We gently guide clients through the process in the comfort of their own home.
