Cohabitation agreements

When people start to live together, they hope and  believe that their relationship will last. Sadly that is not always the case. A cohabitation agreement is an agreement between cohabitants, usually entered before or soon after they start to live together, which sets out what they have agreed with each other about their finances or their children. It can cover what financial or other contribution each of them will make. It should cover in particular what their intentions are with regard to any property either or both of them own and what they agree should happen to it in the event that the relationship breaks down. This can save a lot of heartache and money and avoid court proceedings if, sadly, the relationship comes to an end.
