It is increasingly common that couples live together at the start of a relationship and many chose never to marry. When couples live together each of the couple’s financial arrangements becomes increasingly interwoven and this cam lead to considerable disputes if the relationship later comes to an end, either through separation or death.

It is for such reasons that a cohabitation agreement should be considered from the outset, or at least at the stage where the couple choose to live together on a long term basis but elect not to marry. This is especially important if property is being purchased. Our solicitors often see situations where one party has contributed a lump sum towards the purchase of a property without any agreement in place should a dispute arise, plus situations where one of the couple has contributed significantly more than the other party in relation to, for instance, household costs.

In the absence of a cohabitation agreement the title to any property would determine ownership and the spilt of any the asset rather than the actual contribution made. If there is no cohabitation agreement and parties cannot agree on the division of assets then the only route to resolving matters would be a court action. Accordingly, rather than reaching such a stage prudent planning should be put in place through an agreement that clearly states each parties position.
