Many couples today are living together, sharing earnings and making combined investments in real property and other assets. In doing so, so they are potentially engaging in what is referred to by Washington courts as a “committed intimate relationship”. A co-habitation agreement allows you and your partner to establish your own rules for dealing with financial interests.
Co-habitation agreements are also useful for people who are living together and purchasing a residence together, when romance isn’t involved.
Depending on the circumstances, a co-habitation agreement can take the form of a prenuptial agreement, or a basic co-tenancy contract, trust, or LLC agreement. We work closely with our clients to understand their goals and tailor an arrangement suitable for everyone involved.
