Cohabiting partners

If you are planning to purchase a property with another person but make unequal contributions to its acquisition, or cohabit in a property you solely own, it’s worth considering a cohabitation agreement.

Cohabiting couples often assume that living together as a couple creates similar rights and responsibilities as marriage – or none at all. Both beliefs are wrong.

A cohabitation agreement addresses these issues from the outset. The document can make clear your financial obligations both during and after your relationship, and make clear your respective interests in any property or other assets.
