Legal cohabitation obviously ceases to exist when one of the parties gets married or dies. It may also end by mutual consent or as a result of one person's decision subject to a written declaration that the legal cohabitation has ceased to exist, provided to the Registrar of births, marriages and deaths for the municipality covering the common home (or one of the municipalities if the cohabitants are domiciled separately). Featuring the date it is made, the declaration has to feature the surnames, first names, places and dates of birth of the two parties, their residence, a reference to the willingness or otherwise of the party or parties to terminate the cohabitation and the signature of the party or parties.
