Further Information

A Pre-Civil Partnership Agreement is a formal written agreement entered into by a gay, same-sex couple before the registration of a civil partnership. It's purpose is to record the parties' intentions as to the division of assets in the event that the civil partnership breaks down. It is similar in concept to using a Prenuptial Agreement prior to marriage.

Where the terms of the agreement seem to favour one party rather than the other, it is important for both parties to obtain independent legal advice to avoid a claim by one party that he/she was forced to sign it accepting unfair terms.

This Pre-Civil Partnership Agreement template is suitable where either one party owns the home or both parties own the home as "tenants in common". It states that all property owned by each party prior to the agreement shall remain the property of that party in the event of separation and sets out what should happen to property acquired jointly after the date of the agreement.

Where the terms of the agreement seem to favour one party rather than the other, it is important for both parties to obtain independent legal advice to avoid a claim by one party that he/she was forced to sign it accepting unfair terms.

This is a straightforward agreement stating that all property owned by each party prior to the registration of the civil partnership shall remain the property of that party in the event of separation or the dissolution of the civil partnership. It also sets out what should happen to property acquired during the civil partnership. The agreement states that neither party shall make any financial claim upon the other in the event of separation or the dissolution of the civil partnership.
