It is extremely dangerous to try to negotiate a property settlement arrangement without the assistance of solicitors. There are some hoops to jump through in order to obtain a binding arrangement which will protect against future claims. Private agreements which are not documented according to the principles laid out in the Act may also expose a party to stamp duty and unforeseen tax consequences.
It is best to seek independent legal advice about your position and Chris Rowe can help you here.
