Thank you. I believe the law in the UK does not recognise cohabitation so that would not give rise to an interest. For example, unless named in a Will, all assets owned by my partner would not automatically transfer to me but would legally be owned my partner's family and vice versa.
Can you please explain how this impacts if any on the paragraph you have provided as I don't know if the IRS would see a cohabiting partner as a related party.
