Before taking on a lawyer, couples should agree on who owns what, how their property should be distributed in the event of separation, and what they want from the agreement. A partner then pays their lawyer to properly establish the agreement, and a copy is sent to the other partner who, ideally, should get their own lawyer to get it through. As soon as both parties are satisfied with the agreement, the document will be signed and attested. If one of the partners contributes to the cost of buying and maintaining the home you live in, this will likely be entitled to own a share of the home. If you intend the property to belong exclusively to one of you, the concubine agreement should make it clear that any financial contribution from the other partner is a payment for the general cost of living and not for the house. . . .
