Financial Agreement for a Defacto couple

Western Australia Cohabitation Agreement
with Bonus Legal Will Kit

When to use this agreement

Couples living together in Western Australia deserve the security of a mutually agreed contract in writing for their own protection.

In the event of a breakdown in the relationship or the death of a partner, a Financial Agreement (also known as a Cohabitation agreement) will help to clarify respective property rights, financial commitments and the liabilities arising from joint tenancy. Here, the rights and obligations of the parties can be spelled out in plain English eliminating the burden of uncertainty.

The financial agreement states that property owned by each of the parties before the execution of the agreement, shall
remain the property of that party. Debts are treated in similar same manner.

In the event the parties separate the document sets out how property acquired jointly should be dealt with including gifts.

Cohabitation Agreements are agreements made between people who are living together or intending to live together but not intending to get married.

Couples intending to get married should define their relationship with a Prenuptial Agreement.

The WA legislation (The Family Court Act 1997) applies to de facto relationships, irrespective of gender.
Meaning this agreement is suitable for both heterosexual and same-sex couples.
