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