Republic of Ireland Law Questions Answered by Experts
1. You are entitled to "reasonable notice" from your cohabiting partner before you have to leave the house. This is a minimum of two months notice. However, the law does not automatically give cohabiting partners rights to the other person's property just because they might have been sharing the same house. If you wish to claim a share in their house, you need to go to court under the 2010 Civil Partnership & Rights of Cohabitants Act and seek to claim a share. However, if you have a house of your own, a court is unlikely to grant you a share in your former partner's house. Normally, in making orders under this Act, the court only looks are payments towards the purchase of the house or else direct mortgage payments. Having kept the house, or being supportive does not give any entitlement to a share.
