About this document
This agreement covers any situation where two or more people share ownership and use of a house, flat, bungalow, cottage or other property for permanent occupation. The agreement is designed to regulate occupation where all the owners occupy the property at the same time and the property’s occupation is shared by area. This agreement is suitable not only for situations where, for example, each owner has the exclusive right to use a bedroom and shares the use of all other rooms, but also for virtual flats where, for example, each owner has the exclusive right to use a bedroom, living room, kitchen and bathroom and the only shared area is the entrance hall.
First, you should consider what the most suitable structure for your sharing proposal is.

Incredibly easy to use, well priced, saved us a few $$ with our lawyers. Highly recommend!

The template was very good – just what we were looking for – the instructions in the template and in the accompanying guide were excellent – refreshingly unpatronising with good clear advice and clear cautionary notes re amending certain parts of the template.
"I have found Net Lawman perfect for my needs and saved me thousand of dollars in legal fees getting a lawyer to produce these douc's from scratch. I have used three of the Net Lawman doc's to basically write up the NDA, contract, Non Solicitation agreements to a level of being 95% complete and then used my lawyer to sign off. My lawyer even commented how complete these doc's are.
Thanks guys, great service/product.
Cheers Dean"Dean Harper
"I appreciate your patience. I have to say though it took me a while (I had almost given up) to come across your internet site, but I was quite impressed with the manoverabilty of the site itself and the services it offers. Normally I am very cautious about internet services and am pleasantly impressed by you professional response. Without doubt I will definitely be recommending yourselves to others."Razwana
"...Yes very useful. I understand the terminology etc as I've seen a fair few legal docs before. Notes are very helpful. Gives me some base insight without the expense of a solicitor! "John K
