Pre-nuptial Agreements were once seen as the preserve of the Hollywood elite. In fact, it is now becoming more and more common for couples to enter in to an agreement before being married. It is often a prudent step, especially in cases where each party brings assets to the marriage.
If you are intending to purchase a property with your partner, we advise you to consider protecting your contributions (and any contributions received from the bank of Mum and Dad) towards the purchase price. A declaration of trust can be drawn up by the property lawyers which sets out your specific interest and ownership in the property. In addition a Cohabitation Agreement may be advisable.
