COHABITATION AGREEMENT PRESTON ON 01772 367240
The law, where couples that are living together and are not married in the UK is wide and varied, back in 2006, cohabitation law in Scotland, was altered. Cohabitation is becoming a very popular way for couples and families to live together, this change in law covered most things related to legal cohabitation, this change has led to a real demand for legal cohabitation agreements. These legal agreements are drawn up, based on what is the agreed arrangements and conditions for couples and families that are living in the same home, together.
Where young couples are living together, legal cohabitation agreements are getting very popular and for couples who are now living together having been married before. A written cohabitation agreement can be put in place to cover many different scenarios. The main reason they are put together is for assets which the couple have acquired jointly, no matter who spent the most, everything that is purchased during the time they lived together, belongs to both partners equally, including many different assets like, cash, savings, cars and property and even pets.
We are finding legal cohabitation agreements are getting more popular than they have ever been!
COHABITATION AGREEMENTS PRESTON – WHAT DO THEY COVER?
Cohabitation agreements are more popular than ever as living together whilst not married, is a very common way to live, especially for younger couples and couples who have been married before. Legal cohabitation agreements are gaining in popularity. Family law, in the UK, states that any money that is saved or household goods that are bought, regardless who provided most money, each partner has an equal share, items that are covered can include, investments, money or savings, we would advise you put an agreement or legal document in place as soon as possible.
There are many different dangers of not having a legal cohabitation agreement – any one of the partners can make a claim against the other without one.
It is also worth noting that any claim must be done within a year of the couple splitting up and only if either feel they have been financially disadvantaged because of this split. In the United Kingdom 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 die – as long as their partner did not have a written legal will put in place stating otherwise, for advice on these types of agreements or legal written wills please get in touch today.
