If you live together but are not married and have contributed financially in some way to the property you live in then it is possible that you may have a claim against the property. This would be classed as a TOLATA claim – a claim under the Trusts of Land and Appointment of Trustees Act 1996. Generally, property disputes between couples who have not been married to each other or who have not been in a civil partnership with each other will be dealt with under TOLATA.
