Cohabitation Agreements​

Cohabitants are individuals that live together without being married. In the unfortunate event that the relationship ends, such individuals do not have the same legal rights as married couples.

To avoid the potential problems that may arise as a result of the lack of legal rights, such individuals can enter into a Cohabitation Agreement. This agreement details how assets and other joint possessions will be divided.

At Terrells LLP, we can assist you in creating a Cohabitation Agreement that reflects both the needs and rights of you and your partner, in the event of any unexpected circumstances.

Cohabitation Agreement Solicitors

Nobody wants to think about their relationship ending, but the fact that you have an agreement in place does not mean that you think the worst will happen. Rather, creating a Cohabitation Agreement simply means that both you and your partner are aware of where you stand.

It just means that you both know where you stand legally. It ensures that if your relationship ends, you can avoid difficult, lengthy and expensive arguments about who owns what, at a time when you are likely to be emotional and upset.
