There could be a number of reasons for why you may wish to transfer the ownership of a property into another person's name, whether it be death, divorce, or otherwise.

Understanding Property Transfers

Before proceeding with a property transfer, it is crucial that you understand both the limitations and the requirements that this process entails.

Firstly, it is always essential to have a conveyancer or a solicitor with the appropriate experience in order to help you with the legalities. Additionally, you will need to review the current property ownership status to determine the desired proportion of the property that you wish to transfer.

If you're the sole owner, or there are multiple owners, then it'll affect the process in different ways. Next, you must legally document the change of ownership by preparing a transfer deed. This document should include details of the property, the current owner(s), the new owner(s), and the shares and interests in the property.

Once the deed has been executed, it must then be registered with the appropriate land registry or government authority. This ensures that the new ownership is legally recognised.
