Cohabitation agreements

What is it?

A Cohabitation Agreement is a type of agreement that two people who intend to live together may enter into.

What does it do?

A Cohabitation Agreement generally sets out a couple’s rights and obligations to one another’s property. This often includes a waiver of spousal support in the event of relationship breakdown and a specific description and allocation of the property belonging to each partner at the time they enter into the agreement and what will belong to each if the relationship breaks down. A Cohabitation Agreement can be drafted to suit your individual circumstances. You should talk to an experienced family lawyer about your specific circumstances.
