Our Service

Cohabiting couples do not have the same rights as married couples, but protection still exists, and our specialist Family team is best placed to advise you on how to secure a fair settlement.

If you are planning on living with or are already living with your partner, you may wish to enter into a Cohabitation Agreement to regulate how you are to own your joint property.

More and more, Cohabitation Agreements are being used to provide clarity for unmarried couples wishing to regulate the terms of their relationship. An agreement can provide written evidence of what you intended at the outset, as to your respective ownership of property, and what you each intend to happen in the future.

Cohabitation Agreements can clarify:

  • Respective ownership of property.
  • The ownership of personal belongings
  • Respective contributions towards the mortgage and household outgoings
  • Respective liability for overdrafts, credit card debts, and other liabilities.
  • Ownership of bank accounts and cars
  • Financial provision for children

We can also help you to secure a fair financial settlement from your ex- partner when the relationship breaks down.
