Cohabitation Advice Leeds - What are my rights when living with my partner?

If you are living together as a couple, you might be lawfully 'cohabiting'. Cohabitation is not the same as a civil partnership, and does not, after a particular length of time, give you the same rights as a married couple or as civil partners. This is where problems, confusion, and tension can occur between cohabiting couples.

Cohabitation supplies certain legal rights; however, to know how these apply to your situation correctly, it is sensible to seek legal advice with an expert family lawyer. It could be the case that you did not qualify as a cohabitant, which could have significant consequences if you are relying on the presumption that you are. One way to ensure that you and your partner are on the smae page, is to enter into a cohabitation agreement.

We understand how difficult family and relationship matters can be, and so we use a friendly and understanding service with a strong focus on resolving your legal problems both swiftly and with minimal disruption to your other familial relations. To work with our devoted team, call us today.

What is a cohabitation agreement?

A cohabitation agreement is an agreement entered into by couples who are planning to live together, or those that are already living together. The agreement will set out the terms of cohabitation, including rights to property, financial responsibilities and even matters relating to the care of children.

What does a cohabitation agreement cover?

Cohabitation agreements can cover a broad variety of matters, including but not limited too:

  • Which party is responsible for paying bills and upkeep of the property
  • Who owns the property and in what proportion where appropriate
  • What should happen in the event of separation
  • Who is liable for certain debts

Cohabitation agreements are frequently used to protect a share in property, and so it is vital to discuss your specific circumstances with a specialist lawyer to ensure that your assets are fully protected.

Is a cohabitation agreement legally binding?

Generally yes. When you enter into a cohabitation agreement you are entering into a formal legal contract with the person you intend to live with.
