Although the deceased's cohabitant had failed to establish that statements made by the deceased amounted to a grant of beneficial interest in the property in which the couple had lived, the cohabitant was entitled to reasonable financial provision from the estate as a dependent living with the deceased for the 2 years immediately preceding the death.
