Hello and I have a question regarding pre-matrimonial property.

Customer Question

Hello and I have a question regarding pre-matrimonial property. My parents are planning to purchase a property in London for me to live, ideally with names of me, my father and my mother. However because this is a pre-matrimonial property, I am wondering if I get divorced in future ,will I need to share the value of it with my future partner/husband? Would you please provide me some legal advices regarding pre-matrimonial possession in the UK?

Thank you for your question.
My name is Clare and I will do my best to help you but I need some further information first.
I am afraid that in England and wales all property owned by either party at the time of the divorce forms part of the Matrimonial Assets for consideration by the court in the event of a divorce
However the court does take into account what assets each party brought to the marriage in deciding what the settlement should be
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
