Entering into a written agreement recording ownership of your pets will help to avoid the heartache of a dispute should you separate from your partner in the future. We have created a bespoke ‘Pet-Nup’ agreement to assist with this. We understand that every pet owner’s circumstances will be different and the document will need to be tailored to ensure that it fits our client’s purposes.
The aim of a Pet-Nup Agreement is to avoid the need to go to court about the ownership of your pet and it is an agreement that can fit into the wider regulation of your financial and personal circumstances with your partner whether that be a broader Cohabitation Agreement whilst you live together or a Prenuptial Agreement if you are intending to marry/enter into a civil partnership. Pets are treated as “chattels” in the eyes of the law which means they have the same legal status as any other possessions such as a car or piece of art. The careful recording of the ownership of your pet and the updating of the written agreement as you welcome new pets into your family is the best way to evidence ownership. We can help to create an agreement which is right for you.
