‘Moving in Together’ - A 1 Hour Guide for Conveyancers
'Shall we move in together?' or 'Dad - why don't you move in with us?' sound like fairly simple questions but for the conveyancer they are fraught with potential difficulties.
Your clients may not appreciate the possible minefield of law they are treading upon. It is your duty to spell out all of the things that can, and often do, go wrong.
The situations you will be called upon to advise will be as varied as the many clients who seek your advice - from cohabitees to aging parents and knowledge of the many areas of the law which touch on this topic is essential.
