Cohabitation agreements

More people are choosing to live together, or, 'cohabit', than ever before. Although many cohabiting couples believe they have "common law" rights equivalent to married couples, it often comes as a shock that they do not.

At Martin Kaye we believe in explaining the pitfalls and the methods by which you can avoid them at the start of your relationship. This can be invaluable to both parties, as it will avoid expensive legal argument and heartache later on if things don't work out.

We can draft an agreement for you which sets out clearly what will happen to the house and its contents, the car, your savings, the debts and anything else you need to deal with, so that everybody is sure where they stand. We appreciate that it is bad enough dealing with the heartbreak of a separation, without arguing about material things as well.

Our family team are experienced in this area and would be happy to advise and prepare a suitable cohabitation agreement for a fixed fee. We think this is a small price to pay for peace of mind.
