Cohabitation agreements

If you are considering moving in with your partner then you should think about entering into a cohabitation agreement to protect against any problems that might arise in the unfortunate event that you separate in the future. You can have an agreement put in place even if you have already started cohabiting with your partner. The purpose of such an agreement is to regulate the financial matters in the event of your separation.

The law on cohabitation changed in 2006 and new rights for cohabitants to make financial claims in the event of relationship breakdown were introduced. If you are living with your partner or considering buying a home with them a cohabitation agreement can regulate what happens with these rights and the financial matters if you separate.
