HELPING FAMILIES IN STOKE FOR GENERATIONS
COHABITATION AGREEMENTS STOKE ON 01782 454166
The legal rights in Cohabitation Law in the UK on is wide and varied. For example, in Scotland it was recently changed in 2006, this was probably needing to change as in today’s climate, cohabitation is becoming a far more common way of how couples and families live together.
The change covered legal cohabitation and the real need for cohabitation agreements being put in place. This written document is a legal agreement on what is the agreed arrangements for couples who haven’t got married but are living together or cohabiting. We have seen many different reasons where legal cohabitation agreements are getting more popular, especially with younger couples living together and couples who get together having been married before or who had been in a long term relationship prior to this one. Cohabitation agreements can cover many different things, the main content in the document is what the couple acquire jointly. This needs to be addressed in the document, no matter who spent what or who spent most, during that time and which they use in their shared family home. The document needs to include everything that is bought which is presumed to belong to both partners equally. It can be simple things or include the larger assets like cars and property or emotional buys like dogs, cats or any other pets. Cohabitation agreements are more popular today than they ever were.
COHABITATION AGREEMENTS STOKE – WHAT DOES THE AGREEMENT COVER?
In the United Kingdom today, there are many people who are living together before taking their vows and getting married. Couples who move in together after a marriage or relationship breaks down is a very common way to live in this day and age. Our team believe, more than ever, cohabitation agreements are gaining in popularity and are totally necessary.
Family law in the UK states that any money saved up from housekeeping, or any assets or household goods are bought, regardless of who actually paid for them or provided most of the money, people sharing a home have an equal right to share in everything, including savings, cash or anything that is purchased with it.
If you are living together and are not yet married, we would advise on the drawing up of a legal cohabitation agreement. Both parties involved should put an agreement or document in place as soon as possible, without having a cohabitation agreement in place any co habitant can make a claim against the other, as long as it is done within a year of the couple separating, especially if one party feels they have been financially disadvantaged as a result of the relationship coming to an end. In the United Kingdom the law states that a cohabitant can make a legal claim to a share of their partner’s estate or assets if the relationship comes to an end or in the event of a partner passing away – however please be aware, that this type of claim can only be made if their partner that they were living with did not make a will.
