Mackintosh Bradley & Price Services - relationship property

To minimise the risk of a claim many people are now electing to enter into a contracting out (or pre-nuptial) agreement.

Newer couples often choose to keep all property that they bring to the relationship separate, and then treat all property that they build up together as relationship property.

Couples who already own property, or have their own business interests may choose to enter into these agreements in addition to a wider trust and asset planning structure.

We have extensive experience in negotiating and preparing simple to complex agreements promptly. We taylor those agreements to your particular business needs. Accountants and other business advisers respect us for our commercial acumen and understanding of wider taxation issues when documenting these arrangements.

So if you own or operate a business, are thinking of buying property or already have property then we strongly recommend that you consider using our expertise in this area.


If you are facing a separation where no agreement is in place (or there is an agreement you want to have set aside), then our expertise in litigation and case management will be of interest.

We have experience in the handling of cases which cannot be agreed amicably, including the many exceptions to the 50/50 sharing principle.

The laws and procedures concerning relationship property can be complex and resolution of these matters will usually require legal assistance. Our extensive commercial experience and knoweldge of finance and tax issues sets us apart in this field.

Also, see us about:

  • Litigation funding;
  • After separation asset planning;
  • Trust busting.
