Cohabitation | Living Together Agreement

Why do I need a cohabitation or Living Together Agreement?

As detailed in Finances on other relationship breakdown, it can be seen that when a relationship outside of marriage or a Civil Partnership breaks down, the protection that applies in those sorts of relationships, doesn't apply here. Parties often believe otherwise.

This often results in unfairness, particularly where there are children. Separation issues are often about strict legal rights and not fairness. Resolving such issues can be complicated and expensive.

A Cohabitation or Living Together Agreement can therefore provide such protection, particularly with matters such as property. By the same token It can also be a pre-nuptial equivalent, for those wishing to protect their property from possible claims as a result of living with someone else. In either scenario it provides security and certainty. In turn it can save potential legal costs arising from such claims.
