Transferring Equity

Transfer of Ownership (or Equity) is the process of changing who owns a property legally. It might mean someone being added or removed to the property ownership or an entire change of person(s). Our team aims to provide sensible and clear advice on all of the options available to you so that you can make an informed decision for your transfer of equity needs.

Why do people wish to transfer equity?

Transfer of ownership might be needed or required for many reasons, for example:

The owners are separating or getting a divorce

The owner has died

The owner marries and seeks to change from a single ownership to a joint ownership

The owner wishes to add a co-habitant or partner to a property

Equity is transferred as a gift

The process of transferring equity

Firstly, all documentation will be gathered and we will obtain a copy of the property title deeds from the Land Registry. The solicitor will then:

  • Be able to confirm the provided information is accurate as per the Land Registry
  • Review the property deeds and title deeds
  • Prepare and organise the documents for the deed transfer for signing by all involved parties
  • Verify what Stamp Duty Land Tax will be payable for the property

After this, formal consent will need to be sought from all parties including the current co-owners and mortgage lenders. When funds are transferred and the paperwork is all signed then the equity transfer is completed.
