Transferring Ownership

There could be any number of reasons that you decide to transfer property ownership to someone else and you can transfer property in a number of ways:

  • Add people to the title
  • Remove people from the title
  • Give the property as a gift
  • Transfer the property under a Will

Many transactions will be straight forward. However, if there is a loan or mortgage outstanding, or the transfer involves repaying or taking out a secured loan or mortgage on the property, then the situation becomes more complicated. In these cases, we will liaise with the lender to make sure that everything has been completed properly and there will be no problems in the future.

Unfortunately, not all transfers are amicable and in these situations, our expert team can also deal with any disputes that arise between the parties.
