What is a cohabitation agreement?

A cohabitation agreement is an agreement entered into by a couple who live together or plan to live together. The agreement will set out the parties intentions in relation to their finances, assets -whether jointly or individually owned- and what should happen if the relationship breaks down.

Is a cohabitation agreement legally binding?

A cohabitation agreement is a legally binding document - but only when properly drafted and executed. It is for this reason that it is always advisable to instruct a specialist family law solicitor to advise you on your cohabitation agreement properly, as well as to draft the document for you.

Why should I enter into a cohabitation agreement?

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 can 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 chooses to live together on a long term basis but elect not to marry. This is especially important if a 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 circumstances where one party to the couple has contributed significantly more than the other party concerning, 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 court action. Accordingly, rather than reaching such a stage, careful planning should be put in place through an agreement that clearly states each parties position.
