Cohabitation Agreements Help & Advice

Where a couple is unmarried, but wish to share a home together, arrangements can often become complicated.  One of them may have put more into the house than the other, or the house may be held in one of their names but both are contributing financially.  If the relationship comes to an end, these scenarios can lead to an outcome which was not intended by either of them at the outset.

A simple way of avoiding such difficulties is to have a cohabitation agreement drawn up, preferably before a couple move in or buy a house together. The agreement can set out specifically the way the couple would like their finances to run while they are together and what will happen in the event that they separate.

We offer a cohabitation agreement on a fixed fee basis in most cases.
