What is a cohabitation agreement?

Follow Us

Married people are not the only ones who require an agreement regarding assets, property and finances.  Today, many couples choose to reside together without getting married.  Luckily, there are laws in place that protect their rights.

When two people live together, but remain unmarried, they forego specific rights that are available to married people.

A cohabitation agreement is a private contract between two parties who plan to live together in an intimate relationship without a valid marriage.  It can be used to protect personal finances or even a business or property transaction down the road.  In addition, it will ensure each party’s rights in the event of a death or breakup.
