Cohabitation agreement (FL001)

Under legistation introduced in 2010 'qualified cohabitants' can have certain rights and obligations. This process drafts a cohabitation agreement to protect the interests of a cohabiting couple in an intimate relationship who are not married to each other or in a registered civil partnership and are either already living together or plan to live together in a home that they are renting or which is owned by one or both parties. This document will regulate the financial interests of the couple during the relationship and, should their relationship come to an end, deal with common issues such as the division of joint assets, the mutual home and joint bank accounts etc.. A cohabitants’ agreement is legally valid only if the cohabitants have each received independent legal advice or have received legal advice together and have waived the right to independent legal advice, the agreement is in writing and signed by both cohabitants, and the general law of contract is complied with. The court may vary or set aside a cohabitants’ agreement in exceptional circumstances where its enforceability would cause serious injustice.
