Cohabiting Couples- Agreements

The law determining how property should be divided between cohabiting couples is complex. It is a difficult issue to raise, but it is sensible to decide before entering into a cohabiting relationship, what both parties intend and what should happen in the event of a breakdown of that relationship.

Recent case law acts as a timely reminder that a legally enforceable agreement between such parties before they cohabit must always be desirable, from a commercial point of view, in setting out and creating evidence of the intentions of the parties before they actually do cohabit.

If you are considering cohabiting or indeed if you are currently cohabiting then a cohabitation agreement may protect your future interests.
