Cohabitation Agreements may not seem terribly romantic but overlooking them can have consequences.
Our Family Law solicitors offer expert advice from our convenient offices in Northampton, Kettering, Corby, Higham Ferrers, Wellingborough and Leicester….in fact we cover most of Northamptonshire, Leicestershire and sometimes beyond.
Living together: Cohabitation Agreements
The law treats unmarried partners living together in a very different way to married couples and there is no such thing as a common law husband or wife. We can help you clearly set out arrangements to deal with property ownership, financial contributions and household contents. Our Family Law team can ensure that a Cohabitation Agreement can be tailored to your specific circumstances and deals with what should happen if the relationship breaks down. If you are buying a property together you also need to consider how that ownership will be recorded at the Land Registry to show your entitlement to a share of any equity. We can advise on all of the options available to you.
People often worry that using a solicitor means uncertainty about cost. Not with the Family Law team at Wilson Browne. We promise to inform you before we begin and to keep you informed throughout.
If you instruct a member of our Family Law team, you will always be kept informed of costs in a clear and easily understandable way: it is as simple and as important as that. You will:
- be given an estimate of fees in advance
- we will not begin any work until you are happy with our estimated costs
- we will be clear on our charges, including VAT
- we will be transparent on any fees that any third parties may need to charge you in relation to the matter.
- if you ask us to carry out additional work, we will tell you what this may cost.

There will be certainty and no hidden costs. And that’s a promise.
