What else should I think about?
A home is an asset which you may own entirely or in a shared arrangement with somebody else, usually a spouse, partner, relative or friend. Any breakdown in your relationship with a co-habitee could lead to a messy wrangle over rights to the property. So it is sensible to agree and formalise entitlements from the outset in a properly drafted co-habitation agreement. Contact one of our family law specialists to find out more.
Making a will sets out how you would like your possessions to be dealt with when you die. Your home could well be your most valuable asset and so you should make sure that it will be inherited in the right way, by the right people. Our wills, trust and wealth management specialists can help you take care of these arrangements, as well as advising you on tax efficiency and trusts.
Landlord and tenant disputes
Moving to your own property from rented accommodation needs some careful planning. Landlords can be quick to challenge tenants on unpaid notice period rent, or on the condition in which they leave their property. A housing specialist can advise you on the preparatory steps you should take and, if a dispute arises, help you resolve it quickly.
