Making a Cohabitation Agreement

  • What is a Cohabitation Agreement?

    If you and your significant other are also roommates, a Cohabitation Agreement is a smart way for you both to protect yourselves and your assets when you live together. We'll make it simple to create a Cohabitation Agreement.

  • What should be in a Cohabitation Agreement?

    A Cohabitation Agreement should address ownership questions (who owns what, and what is owned jointly). It should also address what happens before or after one party moves out. The Cohabitation Agreement can also include household expenses and responsibilities, earnings, joint bank accounts, and ownership of property acquired by gift or through inheritance.

  • Why should you have a Cohabitation Agreement?

    A Cohabitation Agreement can be an outline to a successful partnership. Through this contract, you and your partner can identify how your property and assets are owned. A common purpose for the Agreement is to protect you from your partner's debts.

    Alternatively, because you are not married, your partner may be shut out from inheriting your property. Use the Agreement to ensure that your partner has a right to inherit your property, if you choose. This Cohabitation Agreement clarifies how you and your partner own and use the property in your relationship.

  • Can you write your own Cohabitation Agreement?
