Hello, this is Jim and I’m a dual-qualified lawyer (UK & Republic of Ireland) happy to help you today.
Do you both own the property you're currently living in? If so, is it owned together as a whole or in distinct shares (joint tenancy v tenancy in common)?
Thanks, if there is no will in place, under survivorship rules if one of you dies, the house goes to the surviving owner. SO it is vital you have a will in place - you can download a last will and testament at http://www.lawdepot.co.uk - it needs to be witnessed by someone who is not a beneficiary. You can leave your savings to whoever you want as you are not married either.
Is there anything else I can help with?
