Co-habitation Agreements & Living Together
Moving in with your partner can be an exciting time, but it is important to remember that couples who live together have hardly any rights compared to married couples or civil partners. This means that if the relationship breaks down, or one partner dies, your assets may not be protected in the way you would like.
With this in mind, if you decide to move in with your partner, it is a good idea to draw up a living together agreement. This agreement records what each party is contributing to the household and can help you sort out the day-to-day workings of living together, as well as enabling you to agree what happens to the house and associated assets if the relationship breaks down.
We are experienced in helping clients with cohabitation agreements as well as pre or post-nuptial and separation agreements.
