Moving in together

Purchasing a home and moving in together is a cause for celebration for a couple. However, it is important to be aware that the situation could potentially become complicated in the unfortunate event that the couple subsequently breaks up. We strongly advise couples purchasing a home together to seek legal advice and enter into a co-ownership agreement at the same time that they purchase the property.

I first came in to contact with Eoghan P. Clear Solicitors when acting as auditor for a large retailer. They have consistently impressed me with their broad legal knowledge, professional service and the simple fact that they will always return a call. I have since used them personally and recommended them to other clients and family members. They are my first call when I have a legal question.
John G. Molloy CPA
Just a quick note to express my gratitude for your extremely hard and patient work in making me a home owner. It has been a great relief to have a solicitor who is so capable and in whom I can put my complete trust working on my behalf. You have certainly not had an easy time with this transaction and your perseverance has been very much appreciated. I am delighted with my new home and have spent all weekend playing with it! Once I am ready for guests you are welcome anytime. Many thanks.
