Law Commission report and Government response
Following extensive consultation, the Law Commission published its report to Parliament on 31 July 2007. The report contains final recommendations regarding the law as it affects cohabitants' property and finances when their relationships end, whether by separation or by death.
Their report was based on a consultation they held in 2006. The consultation paper set out various provisional proposals and posed a number of questions on which they sought consultees' views.
On 6 September 2011, they published the Law Commission's response to a written ministerial statement issued on behalf of Government by Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Ministry of Justice, Jonathan Djanogly. The statement announced the Government's intention to not take forward our recommendations for reform during the current parliamentary term.
