Relationship Property Agreements.

Unless you enter into an agreement with your spouse or partner, the rules in the Property (Relationships) Act 1976 will apply to the division of all property on separation or death.

Relationship Property Agreements can be entered into before you enter into a relationship or during the relationship to clarify the status of property and also at the end of the relationship to avoid the prospect of litigation over property matters.

Property agreements must be certified by lawyers and, once signed, are very difficult to over-turn. It is important that they are carefully and accurately prepared, explained and understood.
