Premarital and Cohabitation Agreements

Download our Guide to Premarital Agreements here.

Pre-marital agreements are commonly known as “Prenups”. A premarital agreement is never made with the intention of separating or getting divorced.  It is viewed as a responsible act before marriage and is becoming more widespread.  Should the marriage come to an end such an agreement can have a significant influence on financial provision following the end of the relationship.  We recognise that the negotiations and preparation of such agreements need to be carefully and sensitively handled. We will do our utmost to ensure a smooth, unacrimonious process for you.

Our guide to premarital agreements contains full information about the way such agreements work and who can benefit from them.

Cohabitation Agreement

A cohabitation agreement enables you and you partner to formally record the terms of cohabitation including contributions to the purchase of property. A cohabitation agreement can regulate how the cohabitation is to work, and how contributions to outgoings, future contributions to property etc can be protected if you decide to separate.

Why should you consider a cohabitation agreement?

The law governing the finances and property rights of unmarried couples on separation is complex and often brings about surprising, and often seemingly unfair, results. You can take steps to avoid having to go to Court on issues by entering a cohabitation agreement. These agreements are particularly important for those in relationships who buy property together and who have children.

We can advise you on the appropriate way forward and give you full details on how cohabitation agreements work.
