Today, in the UK, the law where couples are living together and are not married is wide and varied, for example back in 2006, the law in Scotland, was altered. With cohabitation becoming a very popular way for couples and families who live together, this change covered most things related to legal cohabitation, which has led to a real need for legal cohabitation agreements to be drawn up. These legal, written agreements are drawn up, based on what is the agreed arrangements and conditions for couples and families where the parents are not yet married but are living in the same home, together.
Legal cohabitation agreements are getting very popular, especially with young couples who are living together and couples who are now living together having been married previously. A written cohabitation agreement can cover many different scenarios however in the main it is written up for assets which the couple have acquired jointly, no matter who spent the most or on what, everything that is purchased during the time they were living together, belongs to both partners equally. This can include many different assets like, savings, cash, cars and property and even pets.
We are finding that legal cohabitation agreements are getting more popular now than they have ever been!
COHABITATION AGREEMENTS PORTSMOUTH – WHAT DO THEY COVER?
Cohabitation agreements are very popular as living together whilst not married, is a very common way to live nowadays, especially for younger couples and couples who have been married before. More than ever before legal cohabitation agreements are gaining in popularity. Family law, in the United Kingdom, states that any money that is saved or any household goods that are bought, regardless who provided most money, each partner has an equal share, this can also include items such as, investments, money, savings or cash, we would advise you put an agreement or legal document in place as soon as you possibly can.
There are many dangers of not having a legal cohabitation agreement in place as any one of the partners can make a claim against the other without one.
We must also make you aware that any claim must be done within a year of the couple splitting up if either feel they have been financially disadvantaged. In the UK family law states that a cohabitant – someone in a relationship that has lived together – can make a legal claim to a share of their partner’s estate and assets should they pass away – as long as their partner did not have a written legal will put in place, for advice on agreements or wills please get in touch today.
