Families and relationships
Living with other people can be complicated. Whether they are family members, your husband, wife or civil partner, an opposite sex or same-sex partner. Your rights will vary depending on the legal status of your relationship and whether you own or rent your home. This area of law is very complex, so you may need face-to-face advice about your individual circumstances.
If you would like to speak with an adviser about a family or relationship related housing problem, call Shelter Cymru’s advice and support services on 0345 075 5005 or visit advice near you to find an advice surgery locally where you can talk to someone in person.
Civil partnerships allow same-sex couples the chance to enjoy the same rights and responsibilities as people who are married
The options you have when you’re splitting up with a civil partner, spouse or unmarried partner will be based on the rights you both have to your home
