Co-habitation agreements

It is increasingly common place for couples to live together long-term, without ever getting married. When cohabiting for long periods, many couples mistakenly believe that they have similar legal rights to a married couple.

In fact, there are no legal protections in place for cohabiting couples, and consequently, financial and property based disputes are common if such relationships later break down.

To ensure that you protect your interests, our cohabitation solicitors in Brighton can assist you to create a suitable cohabitation agreement. These agreements are used to establish ownership of assets, and how finances will be split, both during the relationship, and if the relationship later breaks down.
