8 What does the law provide for the property of registered and non-registered partners?

Under Estonian law cohabitation cannot be registered and there is also no other special regulation foreseen for nonmarital cohabitation. Nonmarital cohabitees can use other legal means outside of family law: they can form partnerships under the law of obligations (the application of implied contracts is limited only to the movable property), acquire common ownership over property according to the law of property, make wills according to the law of succession etc.
