Transfer of Property
Transfers of property can be required for a variety of reasons, such as gifting to family members or transfer to trusts, as a means of tax planning or on separation or divorce
We work in partnership with our Private Client and Family Team to ensure you receive a complete service. We prepare transfers of property following settlements on divorce or separation which must be completed within fixed timescales. We subsequently attend to the registration of the transfer with land registry and file any required returns for Stamp Duty Land Tax or, if in Wales, Land Transaction Tax.
We also prepare transfers of property where another person is being added to a title and/or mortgage and again we have the experience to draft the transfer with necessary additional provisions to protect the existing owner and lender.
