A. More and more couples are choosing to cohabit and raise a family without getting married, so it is therefore a very topical question.
Thereis nospecific legislation governing the separation of cohabiting couples, unlike divorce.
What happens upon separation will depend upon what the parties’ particular circumstances are and what they can agree. If, for example, the house is owned in joint names and each party has contributed equally, it is more likely that equity will be divided equally. If however the house is owned in the sole name of one party, this does not necessarily mean that the other party walks away with nothing. If contributions have been made towards the mortgage, bills etc. it may be that that party has an interest in the property. Although it is never nice to anticipate the end of a relationship, there is a document called a Cohabitation Agreement which can be drawn up either prior to or during cohabitation.
This document is essentially an agreement between both parties and sets out each party’s rights and responsibilities and their obligations if the relationship were to breakdown.
