Cohabitation Agreements: Your questions answered

Is a cohabitation agreement worth considering?

A cohabitation agreement sets out what is to happen to assets in the event that an unmarried couple living together should separate. It is important to remember that in the UK there is no such concept as a “common law marriage” and a cohabitation agreement can offer both parties certainty and protect their respective positions. Provided that they are drawn up correctly and properly executed a cohabitation agreement can be legally binding.
