Are property rights better secured for someone in a live-in relationship without marriage if an agreement is drawn up concerning them ?

Yes – it makes them easier to actualize, because without an agreement an unmarried spouse must prove his/her status as a cohabitee, plus an intention to share, to be entitled to half of the property acquired during the course of cohabitation. If there is a valid agreement then these rights can be secured in advance, without need for proving entitlement .
