Co-habitation Agreements can be difficult conversation initially, but the long term benefits can be worth it

If you are unmarried and about to live with your partner you may wish to look into Co-habitation Agreements to protect your property rights should your relationship be unsuccessful. Whilst we appreciate that bringing up this subject with your partner could be difficult it could also be extremely beneficial to you both. Co-habitation Agreements can cover matters such as your respective shares in the property, responsibilities for financial payments during your relationship, protection from claims in respect of any other assets you each have etc.

The biggest issue with Co-habitation Agreements is actually discussing it in the first place. There could be a danger of it being seen as a business arrangement and could be a real passion killer in the early stages of a relationship. But there are many couples who wished that they had considered one at the end of their relationship. Bryan & Armstrong are offering a 20% discount for the first consultation for any individual or couple.

The benefits of considering co-habitation agreements

Signing a co-habitation agreement can offer several benefits for couples choosing to live together without marriage. Firstly, it provides clarity and security by outlining the rights and responsibilities of each partner regarding property, finances, and other assets. This can prevent misunderstandings and conflicts in the future, particularly in the event of a breakup or death.

Not only this, a co-habitation agreement allows couples to customise their arrangements according to their specific needs and circumstances, offering flexibility that traditional legal frameworks may not accommodate. It also encourages open communication and negotiation between partners, fostering a sense of trust and mutual understanding.

From a legal perspective, such an agreement can protect both parties’ interests and assets, ensuring fair treatment and avoiding potential legal battles in case of disputes. Overall, signing a co-habitation agreement promotes stability, transparency, and peace of mind within the relationship.
