business & finances: protect your assets - yours, mine or ours?


what we are doing

This class will be useful for anyone who is considering moving in with their partner (whether the parties are buying a home together or one party is moving into the other's existing home).

It will provide an overview of the Property (Relationships) Act 1976 and the mechanisms for protecting and sharing property including Contracting Out Agreements ("pre-nups").

what you will learn

We will look at: 
* what the default rules under the Act are 
* when the equal sharing provisions of the Act kick in 
* what qualifies as relationship property (you might be surprised) 
* when separate property (including inheritance and property acquired before the relationship) becomes relationship property 
* what you need to do to contract out of the Act 
* what happens on separation (break up or death) 
* other mechanisms for protecting your property
