Cohabitation Agreement Svenska

– Deed of gift – Marriage contract – Concubinate contract – Asset comparison – Hidden co-ownership – Transaction regulators The parties can decide for themselves how the property should be divided if the cohabitation is to be terminated. This is done through a concubine agreement. We can help establish such a contract. Edebäck is not the only expert who thinks it`s time to change the law. Kajsa Walleng, a lawyer who earned a PhD on the subject, had similar proposals for Swedish Radio News. But even if the concubine law were to change, Edebäck still likes the idea that being an unmarried couple means having weaker rights and duties so that people can choose the type of partnership they want to be in. She believes that it may be time for Parliament to review the 2003 Concubine Act. She has many proposals that she thinks could improve the law, such as that sambo couples inherit each other`s property, especially when they have children. And that all the property that the couple acquires together should be considered common, not just their common home and furniture. Maybe there should even be a statement that couples make when they move in together just to show they understand the law, Edebäck says.

When a concubine`s partnership ends, the parties require the liquidation of the property in order to establish the combined patrimony. Concubrent property is common property and common patrimony where such assets have been acquired for partition. Other goods that should not be considered common should not be included in the comparison. The law is designed as a protective regime for the financially weaker party and there is no registration of the relationship. At the end of the cohabitation in Article 2), each party may, within one year, request the distribution of the property (§ 8). The rules of distribution provided for by the Law on Concubite are based on the rules of division of the Matrimonial Code. However, the property which, under the Law on Cohabitation, may be subject to division is much less important, since only the common object of the house and household of the cooperators, acquired for co-use, can be subject to division (so-called concubine property). Excluded are real property used primarily for recreational purposes and property acquired before the start of cohabitation. The net value of the concubine`s assets is distributed and the partner who owns the most concubine`s property can choose whether the compensation is made by payment of a lump sum or by transfer of equivalent assets (§ 17). The cohabitant with the greatest need for housing may be granted the right to take charge of the dwelling when the cohabitation ends, even if it belongs solely to the other concubine, provided that the property is held by a lease or a tenant (in Swedish: bostadsrätt) (§ 22).
