Cohabitation Agreements

A cohabitation agreement is a practical solution for couples who live together but are not married or in a civil partnership. It outlines how property, assets, and responsibilities for bills will be divided in the event of a separation. While not inherently legally binding, a well-drafted cohabitation agreement, executed with the help of experienced solicitors, can hold considerable weight in court, offering a clear directive on the division of shared assets and responsibilities. 

Southgate solicitors specialises in drafting comprehensive cohabitation agreements tailored to the unique needs of each couple. We understand the importance of protecting your interests and ensuring a fair division of assets, and we’re here to guide you through every step of the process. 

The Benefits of a Cohabitation Agreement 

Clarity and Fairness: Establishes clear expectations and agreements on asset division and responsibilities, reducing the risk of disputes. 

Protection of Interests: Helps ensure both parties can protect and claim their rightful share of assets and investments. 

Cost and Time Efficiency: Averts the need for lengthy and costly legal disputes by providing a predetermined resolution framework. 

Peace of Mind: Offers peace of mind to cohabiting couples, knowing their interests are protected should the relationship end.
