Cohabitation Agreement Solicitors
If you are a cohabiting with your partner and would like protection in the event your relationship comes to an end, our expert cohabitation agreement solicitors will be able to assist.
For many, a wedding is an expensive, old fashioned, and unnecessary institution. But marriage is still recognised legally and getting married can confer important legal rights regarding co-ownership of assets and finances to a couple. This can be crucial if the marriage should end in separation.
If you live with a partner but are not married, you may not have any legal right to contest how your shared assets are divided in the event of a separation. While many couples in this situation believe they are protected by something called “common law marriage”, there is, in fact, no such thing in UK law.
This is why couples are increasingly turning to cohabitation agreements as a way of protecting themselves. By coming to an agreement with your partner over what will happen to finances, property, and debt in the event of a separation, you can safeguard yourself against future disputes that could lead to lengthy legal battles.
