Moving in with a partner is an exciting time and there is a lot to think about, which does mean that many couples overlook the importance of a cohabitation agreement. Though you are sure to think your relationship will last, there is no guarantee and deciding to end things can cause a whole host of problems when it comes to no longer living together. Thankfully, cohabitation agreements are designed to set everything out beforehand.
Cohabitation Agreements Epsom and Surrey
When you start living with a partner, you hope and believe that your relationship will stand the test of time. Though some of them do, sadly that is not always the case and many couples end up splitting up and moving on. When this happens, having a cohabitation agreement can help to keep things simple and straightforward. If the relationship should end, a cohabitation agreement clearly states what has been agreed to in regards to finances, children and personal belongings.
A cohabitation agreement is an agreement between two people, usually entered before or soon after they start to live together, which sets out what they have agreed. They generally cover what has been agreed in relation to their finances or their children. It can cover what financial or other contribution each of them will make. It should cover in particular what their intentions are with regard to any property either or both of them own, and what they agree should happen to it in the event that the relationship breaks down. This can save a lot of heartache and money and avoid court proceedings if the relationship comes to an end.
