Cohabitation Agreements


Cohabitation Agreements

A cohabitation agreement is a legally binding contract entered into by two people who either are or are about to start living together, and sets out their financial obligations to one another. This can be as simple as setting out how the proceeds of sale of a property will be divided if the relationship ends, or as complicated as a lengthy document addressing all aspects of a couple’s financial life together such as contributions towards outgoings.
