Transfer of Equity
We advise and assist with transfers of equity. A transfer of equity is when someone is added to or removed from the title of a property.
Typical examples may be: a sole owner adding their husband or wife; a parent adding their son or daughter; or, most commonly, someone being removed from the title when a couple separates.
If there is a mortgage on the property, then there will be issues to deal with. Perhaps the exisiting mortgage will be replaced by a new mortgage in the new names. Perhaps the original lender will remain and will release one party from exisitng mortgage covenants or will join a new party into the mortgage obligations.
Our expertise will guide you through. We deal with all types of transfers of equity, whether or not there is a mortgage involved, including freehold, leasehold and shared ownership properties.
