Use this document to create a cohabitation agreement to protect the interests of a cohabiting couple who are not married or in a civil partnership and are either already living together or plan to live together in a home that they are renting or which is owned by one or both parties. This document will regulate the financial interests of the couple during the relationship and, should their relationship come to an end, deal with common issues such as the division of joint assets, the mutual home and joint bank accounts. In Northern Ireland cohabitation agreements are enforceable as legally binding contracts. Therefore, each member of the couple is advised to take independent legal advice as to the terms and conditions of the agreement before signing it. This agreement is for use when the parties intend to live in Northern Ireland only.
