Common law is not married

M3391M-1011

I return to this topic frequently because it bears repeating: if you are common law, in Ontario, you have no inheritance rights. If your house is owned by your partner, you could get kicked out after they die. You will get none of their assets. You will have to sue their estate for anything.

It’s harsh, but it’s the law. If you are common law, get a will.
