COHABITATION AGREEMENTS NORTHAMPTON
The law in the United Kingdom on cohabitation is wide and varied, in Scotland for example it was actually altered back in 2006. In today’s world, with cohabitation becoming more popular, the change in law covered cohabitation agreements. These are agreed arrangements for couples living together as cohabiting couples. The legal agreements are getting more and more popular, especially with couples who get together having been married before. Cohabitation agreements can cover many things like household goods, furniture and anything else which they acquire jointly during that time and which they use in their shared family home, are presumed to belong to both of them equally this can also include things like cars and property. Cohabitation agreements are more popular today than they ever were.
COHABITATION AGREEMENTS NORTHAMPTON – WHAT DO THESE COVER?
Living together before marriage or moving in together after another marriage breaks down is very popular in this day and age. This goes in some way as to why, more than ever, cohabitation agreements are very popular. The law in the UK says that any money that is saved from housekeeping, or if a property, any assets or household goods are bought regardless of who actually provided the money or provided most of the money, cohabitants have an equal right to share in any money or anything that is purchased with it. If you are living together and are not married you should really think about cohabitation agreements and should put one in place as soon as possible. If the relationship does come to an end, which is more than possible, without a cohabitation agreement in place any co habitant can make a claim against the other within a year of splitting especially if they feel that they have been financially disadvantaged as a result of the relationship ending. Family law also enables a cohabitant to be able to make a legal claim to a share of their partner’s estate and assets if the relationship comes to an end or in the event of their death – it is worth noting though that this type of claim can only be made if their co-habiting partner did not make a will.
