Transfer of equity is the legal process that takes place where the ownership of a share or interest in a property is transferred from one legal entity to another. A jointly-owned property can be transferred into single ownership or a property owned by one person may be put in joint names.
Usually, you will need a conveyancing solicitor to arrange the transfer of equity, including reviewing the title deeds to the property, preparing the transfer deed, and notifying the mortgage lenders and gaining their consent if a mortgage is involved. The deed transfer has to be registered at the Land Registry.
Stamp duty may be payable when there is a transfer of equity. The rules to work out how much stamp duty you pay depend on the specific circumstances of the property transfer and can be quite complicated. HMRC guidance about the rules can be found on the Government website.
We will usually carry out transfer of equity conveyancing for a fixed fee.
