What people ask Angrove Law

A cohabitation agreement is a contract signed between two people who are in a serious relationship and live together but are not married. In Canada, we call this type of relationship a common-law couple or civil partnership. 

Common-law couples get agreements made for a variety of reasons. Either to protect their assets or to make sure assets are split equally upon separation. It’s a good ting to do! As an unmarried couple you are not protected by the law in the same way! 

A common reason for getting a cohabitation agreement is because one partner is moving in with the other. And, the other partner owns the home. When there are two or less properties in question, this is a pretty simple cohabitation agreement. 

If you are going to address that one person will remain the owner in a cohabitation agreement, you need to address other matters as well. Even if it is to say you are undecided. If you ever end up in court, the judges will wonder why you only considered real estate and wcould interpret it to mean that you wanted everything else split equally!

The best thing about drafting an agreement is that most things are your choice! Some couples will choose to have the terms of the agreement survive into their marriage.  In this case, you should resign the agreement to confirm that nothing has changed.

Whereas some couples will choose to have the agreement voided upon marriage and then agree on new terms in a  domestic contract.

In your meeting with Angrove Law, we will discuss the options available to you and so you can move forward with the best choice for your circumstance.
