Prenuptial Agreements and Cohabitation Agreements

A recent survey carried out by YouGov has shown that Generation Z (those born from 1996 onwards) are more likely to enter into a prenuptial agreement than previous generations.

Before they marry, many couples may not realise that they can also protect themselves by entering into a Cohabitation or Living Together Agreement when they start living together.

A Cohabitation Agreement can cover what should happen to your property, children, personal possessions and even your pets should you split up.

They can be particularly useful if partners have made unequal contributions to the purchase of a property and provide both parties with a clear idea of what would happen if unfortunately they split up.

If you are thinking of moving in with your partner and would like a cohabitation agreement, please contact Sarah Spence on 0116 262 8596 sarah.spence@dodds-solicitors.co.uk or alternatively if you are getting married and require a prenuptial agreement, please contact Ashwin Topiwala on 0116 2628596 ashwin.topwala@dodds-solicitors.co.uk
