Cohabitation Agreements

A Cohabitation Agreement, or a living together agreement, is a legal contract between two individuals who are not married or in a civil partnership who are living together or planning to live together. It outlines the division of assets, property, and financial responsibilities between them should they decide to part ways in the future. This agreement can also include details about day-to-day responsibilities, childcare, expense management, and debt distribution.

Whether you are already living together as a couple or have already decided to move in together, our team can assist you with drafting and negotiating cohabitation agreements tailored to your unique circumstances.

Cohabiting does not entitle someone to the same legal rights as a marriage or civil partnership does, and so a properly drawn up and executed Cohabitation Agreement could prove very useful to regulate the arrangements between cohabitees and their financial affairs. It is important that the Cohabitation Agreement is drafted and executed correctly for it to be considered a legally binding contract.
