It is far better to put a cohabitation agreement in place, clearly setting out your interests. This can also help you both understand what rights and liabilities you are taking on and reduce the risk of misunderstandings and disagreements between you.

Unmarried couples have far fewer rights than married couples, particularly when it comes to separation. Having a cohabitation agreement for unmarried partners can help protect you financially and give you some certainty for the future.
It can also reduce the risk of misunderstandings or disputes arising between you and your partner if you have set out clearly from the start how your property and finances will be dealt with, both while you are together and if your relationship ends.
An experienced cohabitation agreement lawyer will be able to advise you on whether an agreement is right for your circumstances and draft a bespoke contract tailored to your needs. It can include issues such as liability for bills and debts and what will happen to property and other assets, should you separate.
Our cohabitation solicitors in Horsham can draw up an agreement on your behalf or give you independent advice on an agreement if you have been asked to sign one. We can also negotiate the terms, where necessary, to ensure that they are in your best interests.
Cohabitation dispute resolution
Resolving legal disputes promptly can prevent matters from escalating and damaging a relationship irreparably. Our solicitors for cohabitation agreements in Horsham have extensive expertise in reducing conflict in disagreements and finding acceptable solutions out of court.
We have the understanding to suggest potential solutions to difficulties and we can work with you to ensure that a cohabitation dispute does not degenerate.
We are trained in alternative methods of dispute resolution, providing advice and guidance that can help you avoid court. Our services include representation in family mediation, collaborative law and arbitration.
Separation for unmarried couples
If your relationship is ending and you will be separating from your partner, we can provide the advice you need to protect yourself and your family and, where necessary, enforce your cohabitation rights as set out in your cohabitation agreement.
Having the support of experienced cohabitation solicitors will ensure that crucial aspects of your separation are dealt with properly, such as splitting assets and issues relating to children.
We always work to resolve matters out of court where possible. Our solicitors are trained in a range of alternative dispute resolution options and we can advise you of the best approach for your circumstances.
Where it is not possible to resolve matters without litigation, we will prepare a strong case for court and ensure that you are represented by an expert cohabitation advocate.
