If you and your partner rent your home from a private landlord it’s important to understand your rights – and responsibilities – if you were to split up.
While many couples end up owning property together, others choose to rent for life. And even couples who plan to buy their own house or flat may start off living together in a rented property. But what are your rights if you rent as a couple? And what happens if you split up? Can you stay on in the property? If you’re married you have rights when it comes to a home you share, but if you live together it's not so clear.
