The day has arrived; it’s the day you are moving into your new home. Your conveyancing solicitor Lancaster will refer to this as the Completion day. The legal Completion date, essentially, is the agreed date on which the parties involved will move. 
 
It is likely that Contracts have already been Exchanged, known as ‘the point of no return’, which makes the transaction legally binding. In some cases, however, Exchange of Contracts and Completion can take place simultaneously on the same day. 
In figures released in November 2017 the Family-aimed legal group, Resolution, stated that the numbers of people in the UK co-habiting had doubled from 1.5 million in 1996 to over 3.3 million in 2017; a number which has surely risen since that date. Resolution also surveyed a group of 2,000 individuals, which showed results of a huge misunderstanding of the law and their rights as co-habiting couples. For example, one common misconception, was the principle of 'Common-Law Marriage'. (For their full results see their article here). 
 
'Common-Law Marriage' is a legal principle which exists in only a small amount of jurisdictions, whereby co-habiting couples are granted rights under the law if they are effectively married i.e. they are arranging their affairs as a married couple would and they are married for all intents and purposes, expect without the legally binding document or religious service.
