Today in the United Kingdom the law on couples living together but not married is wide and varied, back in 2006, the law in Scotland, for example, was altered. With cohabitation becoming a more popular way for couples and families to live together, this change covered legal cohabitation, which in turn has led to a real need for legal cohabitation agreements. These legal agreements are drawn up, based around what is the agreed arrangements and conditions for couples that are not yet married but are living in the same house, together.

Legal cohabitation agreements are getting more popular, especially with younger couples who are living together and couples who live together having been married before. A cohabitation agreement can cover many different scenarios but in the main it is written up for assets which the couple acquired jointly, no matter who spent most or on what, everything that is purchased belongs to both partners equally. These can include many assets like, savings, cash, cars and property and even pets. We are finding that legal cohabitation agreements are more popular now than they have ever been.

 

COHABITATION AGREEMENTS WARRINGTON – WHAT DO THESE AGREEMENTS COVER?

 

Cohabitation agreements are very popular as it is a very common way to live nowadays, especially for couples who have been married before. More than ever cohabitation agreements are gaining in popularity. Family law, in the UK, states that any cash that is saved or any household goods that are bought, regardless of who provided most of the money, each partner in the relationship has an equal share, including items such as, investments, money, savings or cash.

If you are not married and are living together, you really should think about drawing up a legal cohabitation agreement, we would advise you put an agreement or legal document in place as soon as you possibly can. There are so many dangers of not having a legal agreement in place as any one of the partners can make a claim against the other.

Please be aware that any claim must be done within a year of the couple splitting and only if either feel they have been financially disadvantaged. In the United Kingdom family law states that a cohabitant can make a legal claim to a share of their partner’s estate and assets when they pass away – as long as their partner did not have a written legal will put in place, for advice on agreements or wills we can help.

Look at some alternative ways to pay for our services?

A Legal Costs Allowance from the other party

If you substantially depend on the other party for financial support, we may be able to secure an order that results in them paying for your ongoing legal fees. This is classed as part of your regular maintenance payments. Again, there are some fairly stringent criteria, so talk to us about the process involved.

If you are concerned about how you might pay for your legal costs, contact us for advice. It is always better to pay for the best legal representation you can, rather than cut costs now and lose out further down the line.

Litigation Lending

We work closely with specialised lenders who can advance money to pay your legal costs against the prospect of being repaid from a settlement. There are fairly stringent criteria. However, if you are virtually certain of winning a sizeable amount, but you have insufficient money to get from the start to the finish, it may well be an option in your circumstances.

If you are concerned about how you might pay for your legal costs, contact us for advice. It is always better to pay for the best legal representation you can, rather than cut costs now and lose out further down the line.

A ‘Sears Tooth’ Agreement

A Sears Tooth Agreement is an agreement between solicitor and client that ensures the solicitor is paid for their guidance and actions throughout the divorce without causing financial fears for the client. The solicitor and their client agree that an appropriate amount of the client’s final divorce settlement is provided to the solicitor to meet the fees.

If you are concerned about how you might pay for your legal costs, contact us for advice. It is always better to pay for the best legal representation you can, rather than cut costs now and lose out further down the line.
