Couples living together

Formalise your relationship

It's a common misperception that couples who are living together have the same legal protections as those who are married or in a civil partnership. This is not the case. The best way to avoid a number of issues is to consider making a cohabitation agreement. This is essentially a contract between both partners that ensures that certain arrangements are made in regards to their finances and/or children.

Legal Protection for Cohabiting Couples

It is common nowadays for unmarried couples to live together as if they were married or in a civil partnership. This long-term alternative living arrangement may see cohabitants sharing many assets including co-owned property, shared cars or joint bank accounts.

Some financial protection is given by the law to cohabiting couples however, it is untrue to believe that they are afforded the same legal protection as those who are married or in a civil partnership. The difference between the protection offered to married and cohabiting couples is substantial and it is advisable that any cohabiting couple contact a cohabitation lawyer for specialist advice to prevent lengthy legal action if the relationship breaks down.

Creating a Cohabitation Agreement

The best way to avoid a number of issues is to consider making a cohabitation agreement. Once a cohabitation agreement has been put in place, it will offer security should the relationship end or one cohabitee pass away. We are able to advise you on your specific circumstances and let you know what your options are.
