Cohabitation agreements

 

The decision to live together is often seen as a more casual alternative, or precursor to marriage, however it should not be taken lightly as couples living together, or cohabiting, have certain rights should the relationship end, or one of the parties dies.

A cohabitation agreement is a good way of establishing what you want to do should unforeseen events arise. If put in place now a simple and straightforward cohabitation agreement can save a lot of time, money and distress later on.
