Transfer of Equity

Whether gifting, selling or adding a new owner to your property, we will work with you to ensure a smooth transfer of equity.

A transfer of equity occurs when one party remains on the title both before and after the transfer, but the ownership of the property changes in some way. There are many reasons why you may wish to add or remove an individual from the deeds, such as upon marriage to add a new spouse to a pre-existing property owned by you or upon divorce/separation to remove one of the existing owners.

We have extensive experience in handling transfers of equity matters. We can help you with the legal process to transfer ownership of a property, whether you are looking to add or remove a name from the title.

Adding a Name to the title deeds

If you are getting married or entering into a civil partnership, you may wish to add your partner's name to the title of your property. This will give them a legal interest in the property 

Removing a Name from the Title Deeds

There are many reasons why you may wish to remove a name from the title of a property. For example, you may be going through a divorce or separation and wish to remove your ex-partner's name from the deeds. Alternatively, you may wish to remove the name of a co-owner who has passed away.

The process of removing a name from the title can be complex, as it may involve obtaining the consent of other parties with an interest in the property, including lenders. Our experienced conveyancing team can guide you through the process and ensure that everything is handled efficiently.

Whether you are looking to add or remove a name from the title of a property, we are on hand to provide you with expert advice on the legal process involved with a transfer of equity.
