Living together agreements

Couples can easily become reliant on each other and finances in the relationship become mingled. Those who choose not to marry would be wise to formalise an agreement to ensure that assets are safeguarded in the event of relationship breakdown.

When you're living with a partner, it's easy for property and finances to become mingled. To avoid stressful and potentially expensive disputes, it is sensible to enter into a written agreement so you are both clear on your rights and entitlement outside of marriage. 

If you are not married, the Court has very limited powers to assist you in respect of your finances in the event your relationship breaks down. Our lawyers can draw on wide experience to ensure you and your partner reach a fair agreement. We can also help to provide you with clarity and a deeper understanding in the event that your partner is asking you to sign a cohabitation agreement. 

If you would like to understand your rights in relation to your finances and property before or after moving in with a partner, our guide to cohabitation and our guide to living together agreements will help you.
