Cohabitation Agreements Elgin & Morayshire
If you are a couple who are thinking of moving in together or have been living together in a committed relationship for years and have chosen not to enter marriage or a civil partnership, you should consider legally recognising your rights through a cohabitation agreement.
What is a Cohabitation Agreement?
Considering entering a cohabitation agreement with a partner can provide numerous benefits to both individuals. Its purpose is chiefly to deal with what should happen in the (hopefully unlikely) event that the relationship breaks down or in the event of the death of one the couple. A cohabitation agreement tailored to your needs can be as detailed or as simple as you would like. It can address issues like payment of household expenditure or who should retain particular assets in the event of a separation. Cohabitation agreements can not only offer protection but also peace of mind.
