Does the fact that a couple have made a cohabitation agreement constitute proof of their status as cohabitees ?

Not complete proof. The fact that two people have drawn up an agreement declaring themselves to be cohabitees only provides evidence of their potential status i.e. is partial proof . In practice they could be living apart. Thus the agreement would form part of the evidence necessary to prove their status. They would still have to fulfil the other conditions , the main ones being habitation under the same roof and managing a common household.
