When is a Transfer of Equity required?

There are a number of situations which require the need for a transfer of equity on your property. These include:

  • If you get married and want to transfer your home into joint names i.e. add your spouse to the property title
  • Are co-habiting and wish to add your partner to the property title
  • If you get divorced or separated and wish to transfer the jointly owned property into the sole name of one owner
  • You have been advised by a financial advisor, as part of long-term tax planning to transfer your share of the property

How Does the Transfer of Equity Process Work?

The transfer of equity process will differ depending on your individual situation. In most cases, the first step will be to gather all of the necessary information about the transfer of equity request. After this, the conveyancing solicitor will need to confirm the title documentation with the Land Registry. Your conveyancing solicitor will also confirm with your mortgage lender that they are happy with the transfer of equity. Stamp Duty Land Tax may be due if there is a mortgage on the property but it won’t always be necessary if there is a gift of land. Once the transfer of equity has been signed off by all parties involved, your conveyancing solicitor will then provide a financial statement outlining any monies due to any parties involved. Once all funds have been received and everything is signed, the transfer of equity process is complete. After the completion date, you will be provided with an updated copy of the Land Registry documents.
