|Losing the plot|
Not all adult occupiers of a privately owned house will on the face of it own the property. Your name might not be on the title deeds but that does not mean you do not have an interest in the property.
You might have grown up children still living with you or have your partner living with you.
As an owner of the property you may not want your partner or co-habitees acquiring legal protection or an interest in the property.
If you are contributing to the property you may want to protect your investment.
Mortgage conditions stipulate that details of co-habitees or other occupiers must be notified to the mortgage company prior to them taking up occupation. Failing to do so will put you in breach of your mortgage terms.
At Hart Brown our specialist lawyers can advise on the steps to be taken to prevent co-habitees obtaining rights of occupation and an interest in the property or if you believe you have acquired rights discuss those with you and look at the best way of protecting them.
