Thank you for your question
My name is ***** ***** I shall do my best to help you.
At the moment the Uk does not recognise any heterosexual Civil Partnerships wheresoever they are Registered so no I am afraid it is not
Please ask if you need further details
Yes they do
Could you explain your position a little further please
Is there any reason why you cannot simply get married?
Fair enough - I am always intrigued however as from a lawyers point of view Civil partnership and marriage are exactly the same (not known for romance are we)
The basic fact is that unless you wish to conduct an (expensive) legal challenge as part of a campaign to change the law you cannot gain protection in that way.
What you can do is as you suggested - place the property in a Manx Holding Company so that the assets falls under the Manx Probate law
