Cohabitation agreement solicitors

Living with your partner is make or break. The only way of knowing is to try. In fact, more and more couples are choosing to live together without getting married. This is a sensible idea if you ask us.

But what are your legal rights as an unmarried couple? Not doing your homework before moving in is not a very sensible idea. Luckily, the cohabitation agreement solicitors at Talbots Law are here to help.

‘Common Law Partners.’ This term gets thrown around often, and it’s generally assumed that couples with ‘common law’ status have the same rights as married couples. The reality is that unmarried couples don’t have the legal recognition of a married couple. That means that before moving in with your partner, you might find it beneficial to seek sound legal advice regarding the arrangement.

With matters as important as property, a little preparation goes a long way.

What is a Cohabitation Agreement?

Money. Property. Children. These are all things that can and should be discussed before or during cohabitation. Sure, they may not make for the most riveting conversations. But they certainly make for the most vital. A cohabitation agreement is simply a way of solidifying the agreements you’ve discussed together; a legally binding document that outlines how assets will be divided should you split up. When you come together to make important decisions, it allows you to get those big topics out of the way to save any potential disputes down the line.

At Talbots Law, we’re all about the future. Our cohabitation agreement solicitors believe that a little planning goes a long way, and our clients prove us right time and time again. 

Why should I get a Cohabitation Agreement?

It’s all about certainty and security. Taking a little time to agree on crucial matters before it’s too late. All too often, couples assume their assets are protected, or assume their partner agrees with them on important issues. Without the legal document to set the record straight, things will get messy if the relationship breaks down.

Our priority as cohabitation agreement solicitors is to ensure that both you and your partner are satisfied with the conclusions you come to. We never see any aspect of the agreement as unimportant, and we encourage that you settle as many points as possible. Joint bank accounts, items you purchased for the house, any cars or vehicles you own together are all worth agreeing on as early as possible.

That way, no matter what happens, we’ve got you covered.
