Legal Assurance for Cohabitants
If you own or partially own a property in which you and a partner both reside, measuring the financial interests you both have in the property can be difficult. Cohabitation Agreements are drawn up for this exact purpose and they offer legally credible support in instances where unforeseeable relationship problems cause assets to be divided.
It is advisable to consider having a pre-nuptial agreement drawn up when contemplating marriage. In a separation, divorce or civil partnership dissolution where no Pre-nuptial Agreement exists, the courts have control over the division of assets. If an agreement has not been reached between the parties it can be extremely difficult to retrospectively reach an arrangement that both parties feel is justified.
If a Pre-nuptial Agreement is something you feel is a sensible idea, Franklins can offer advice and practical assistance and draft an agreement to suit you.
